my latest completed quilt

I used this design to show of the large scale prints.

Fabrics from Heather Bailey's fresh cut fabric line.

I finished the quilt in 2 weeks.

The backing fabric is by Tracy Porter.

I love my pretty new quilt.
The boys in my house wouldn't dare use it.
Just what I was after. ;)

I think this is my new favorite of all your quilts! I really like fabric with large print and I think your pattern uses it perfectly. But I also like how you quilted the larger squares. It kind of makes it look like its made up of small pieces even though its all one square...does that make any sense?! Anyway, I love it - great job!

I'm checking out your blog today - I love your quilts! I love this one, especially the backing fabric. It looks very whimsy!

I've got your bib-tutorial bookmarked. My 3mo. old is a spitter, so what better way to practise some quilting!
