In my slow progress to add quilts to my home decor, I finished a quilt for the family room! The quilt is intended to accompany a bunch of pillows I made last year.
After piecing the quilt top I was so fortunate to attend a class at QuiltCon with Angela Walters experimenting with different patterns. Coming home, I stared at this quilt top considering my normal course of an all-over quilting pattern and decided to take a different approach to FMQ'ing this one.
Circular feathers in the middle, diamond outlines, pebbles, orange peels and loops combined to make quilting this top so much fun. A little slower than an all-over pattern but a lot more fun!
I quilted the colored sections in a soft minty green Aurifil 2845 and the pebbles in the white space with my go-to Aurifil 2021.
I love, love this backing fabric. I had originally purchased it as the backing for my Tula Pink City Sampler quilt but found that it wasn't really the white background I wanted. For the family room this greige color background will be perfect!!
The backing fabric is Story News Print by Carrie Bloomston.
The pattern is Shimmer by Cluck Cluck Sew and I loved making it!
