Yesterday I posted about the quilt I hoped to finish. I did get it finished last night. Yay! I even got it washed and dried for that wonderful crinkly look I love.
This quilt was made with the Mary Engelbreit fat quarters (23 of them) that my sister bought for me at a yard sale. This collection was called "Mottos". Mary's fabrics and designs are so whimsical! They were just too cute to cut into small pieces, so I used a pattern called the "Fat Quarter Slide." My fabrics were of 8 different designs. In the future I would like to make it using 20 fat quarters. I would get a lot more variety.
Here is the finished quilt. What a glorious, sunny day to take an outdoor photo...first this year!
It is difficult to distinguish the different designs from so faraway, so I took a few close-ups, too.
I loved that sweet scotty dog print in the collection. Much to my surprise I was able to find that print for the backing and the black checked fabric for the binding at Hancock's.
My sister's husband asked if I used all the fabric? Yep, there are more quilts and projects to show. Stay tuned!
