Congratulations! I love your use of the raw edge and that soft fraying that happens. It really does look super snuggly!

Julie! The stuff you're doing is so fun and fresh! I liked this line, but this quilt makes it extra gorgeous!

I had been dreaming up how to do an effect like this with piecing, but I like it so much better how you've done it with texture.

way cute. :)

Ok, this one is way too cute! My first thought was actually apple pie, I could see some of that apple fabric with a nice toasted tan as the lattice, oh yum.. I am going to have to try that, what a great picnic quilt that would be!! Great pattern Julie:)

Sandy said...

Great pattern...I like quick and easy...will look for the magazine.

This is a super great pattern! Did you use "Blush" in your original pattern? I have some charm squares of that line and wish I would have gotten more. Like a jelly roll so I could make this quilt.

So what's a proud Mom to say without sounding like she is bursting with joy yet again? It is a parents dream to watch their child's hard work & determination become something that can be shared with others. Oh so proud to be that Mom!! Another creation well done!

I am going to have to find new words in my dictionary to describe how amazing you are! I think it is time you start your own company. The quilt is beautiful.
