The lovely and super sweet Laurie sent me a FQ bundle of her fantastic Modern Whimsy line and I improved this quilt top with the help of a few solids. I knew what I was going for, but I didn't stop to plan or measure anything until the very end when I had to join the middle section to the sides.
I tried a new-to-me quilting style for this one. I free motion quilted little loops randomly over the entire top. My friend Melanie, aka, the quilting guru, gave me the idea. Her first idea was to quilt random bubbles, but I'm not so good at random so this was her second idea.
The quilting went really smoothly, but I was still unsure about my choice until I posted some pictures on Flickr and got some reassurance from my friends it looked ok. I guess trying something new is a bit scary and I start to self doubt.
For the back I used an Amy Butler Soul Blossom print that matches really well with the Modern Whimsy! I was pleasantly surprised! This quilt is now listed in my shop. I have a coupon code good through February 14th for 14% off anything in my etsy shop! Just enter "SEWMAMA" at check out!
