Friday Finish-Belle Waves Quilt
I must start out by saying, I.Love.This.Quilt. So very soft, great colors and I know it will make me smile and keep me cozy all winter long.
This is a free quilt pattern I found on line, by Faith of Fresh Lemons. She designed it for the Fat Quarter Gang and Art Gallery Fabrics. So of course it was perfect to use with my saved Art Gallery fabric that was waiting for the "perfect" quilt. I love the color and the movement.
The quilting is a bit hard to see, but I started here and quilted the echo of the flower shape, around and around out towards the edges of the quilt.
I can't stop looking at it. It is one of those types of quilts. In the time line of quilts, I think this one got done pretty quickly for me.
For the back I chose this wonderful dusty pink flower print I found on line somewhere. I had 2 yards, but that wasn't enough.
So I auditioned lots of other fabrics to go with it and settled on this print from the Eight Days a Week line.
This quilt, after a trip thought the washer and dryer, is so very soft. Art Gallery fabrics have such a soft hand anyway. The white is Kona white.
The edges I decided to bind in white. I rarely do that, but in this case, I love that it just fades away and doesn't stop at the edge of the quilt. Hope you have a great Friday. Linking up with Crazy Mom.
