Sherbet Pips~The Romance Continues

Thursday, September 15, 2011

Do you ever just fall completely in love with a line of fabric? Sherbet Pips is my love. I love the color connection of red and aqua; couple that with gray and white~L.O.V.E. It's an amazing palette of color and design. I took these pics just as the sun rose yesterday, adding to its wintery appeal.My friend Patty of Uniquely Quilted, quilted it for me. She and my daughter Cassidy coerced me into the sweet pea pink thread; and I'm so glad they did, I really like it! I knew I wanted a swirled pattern, I love the way it appears the little girl is swinging in the wind.
The back of the quilt is almost as fun as the front. The pink swirl against all of that Free Spirit solid, (the color is Manatee) and the Lecien pink stripe made for the perfect binding; definitely smile worthy.
I used wool batting to give it a nice lofty hand and appearance. It's off to Honey Run Quilters for a bit, then travel to Santa Clara in October to adorn HRQ's booth for PIQF. After that, home for a good washing to then be all wrapped up~it's a Christmas gift for my niece.

  2. What a fabulous quilt! I love the pattern you did to show off these fun fabrics (disappearing 9-patch?). Love that quilting too - works perfectly with the pattern and prints. I have a jelly roll of this collection that I can't decide what to do with. I love the imagery and color combinations here too!
