Sweet Life with Anna Maria Horner

Welcome, Friends
It's hard to believe it has been almost a year since
I shared these quilt blocks with you
I did manage to get them stitched together and quilted
even if it did take almost a year
My lovely new quilt now adorns our bed
and makes me smile every time I walk into the room
The Anna Maria Horner fabric
combined with the Sweet Life quilt pattern
is a marriage meant to happen
I'm still a novice quilter
but I sure do enjoy playing and practicing
I combined some straight line, feathers, and a floral template
for a menagerie of designs
The back is a gold & white all over print

Not only do I find my new quilt
aesthetically pleasing,
it is also incredibly warm

Thank you so much for stopping by

Frivol Quilt

This is the first kit in the Moda Frivols offering
The fabric for this 42" x 42" throw is 
Hello Darling by Bonnie & Camille
I loved the peach tone prints so much
that I purchased yardage of several of them
Frivols are packaged in a cute, metal box
They include a pattern
and 7" squares of fabric to use in the pattern
There are also a few other little goodies thrown in there

I used pebble quilting to fill in all that white space
Whew!  That was time consuming, but I sure do like the result

For the label on the back of the quilt,
I machine embroidered the details
That gray "Handmade, Made with Love" ribbon was one of the
extras included in the Frivols tin

Here's the back
Again, love that peach tone

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends
and thanks for stopping by.
