Lazy Sundays Quilt -- Blogger's Quilt Festival

I really need to keep better track of my projects' statuses because this baby has been sitting quilted for months in our apartment and it only needed the binding put on it! Embarassing! Based on the last time I posted about this quilt, it looks like I finished the quilt last January, sent it to the long arm quilter with my mom one of the times she visited in May or June last year, and she brought it back to me when she came in November for Thanksgiving and has been sitting in my sewing space just waiting for me since then. Alison, get your life together!

I'm also sharing this quilt as a part of the spring Blogger's Quilt Festival in the Large Quilt Category!

Anyways, while my mom was here visiting, I was able to get this baby bound and put on our bed! Without further ado...


This quilt came from one of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilts in Quiltmaker magazine with some modifications. This was a twin sized pattern and I added extra wide borders on two sides to make it more square for a queen sized bed. Here are all of the previous posts on this quilt.


100% of the fabric used for piecing the blocks came from my stash! The periwinkle print is Basic Grey but I couldn't tell you the line, the pink print is from the Somersault line, and the peach background is from the City Girl line. The rest I have no idea! Everything was pulled to work with the periwinkle print which I had three yards of!


The binding is a smaller scale flora Moda print (don't know the line off the top of my head) that I had originally bought as a backing for another quilt but wasn't big enough for that project. This is the first large quilt that I've bound completely by machine! The last large quilt I finished was my argyle quilt, but I hand finished the binding for that one.


The quilting is a scroll-type pantograph design that is called "fleur de lis" -- to me it doesn't look like a fleur de lis but whatever. It looks like curly clouds to me. The backing is extra wide off white backing fabric and hopefully you can see the quilting a little clearer on the back than on the front.


This quilt has already taken up residence on my bed! It's a good feeling to make a "stash quilt" where the only things specifically purchased for this project were the batting and the backing!

  7. What a beautiful finish and gorgeous quilt. Makes it even better that you shopped your stash for it. That almost makes it a free quilt.
