It is made with an improv house block and the magazine has called it the 'Homebody Quilt' which I like and am keeping.
I made it completely from a Fat Quarter bundle of Denyse Schmidt's Franklin line and some Kona Snow for sashing. I love how bright and cheery it looks and especially the lime greens, oranges and fuschias.
We have some Fat Quarter and Fat Eighth bundles of Franklin here on our website. They don't contain quite as many fabrics as I used her, but you would get a similar effect.
I used Dashwood Flurry in orange for the back along with a strip of left over scraps.
It is FMQ'd with a trailing daisy and leaf pattern which I find a nice easy pattern to do.
This was a lovely project to make as it was basically just playing with fabric. I much prefer a relaxed improv approach, where you just cut, piece and trim by eye, rather than something that needs accuracy. And I think this will be a great 'ease-in' to improv for those who find it a little daunting.
Along with the full size quilt I made two mini quilts to go along with it.
One just a slightly scaled up block which was hand quilted (with DMC perle cotton 8),
and this applique and embroidery one which I just love!
It also allowed me to multi-task and use the same 'HOME' templates for my Stitch Gathering ticket word!!
My magazine arrived on Monday and I put this shot of the page on to Instagram, and Denyse Schmidt shared it! She is my all-time favourite fabric designer so that made me extra happy :)
