I finished my Hugs and Kisses quilt which is a pattern by Jaybird. The fabric collection is called Terrain and I used a 12 fabric fat quarter bundle along with Kona white for the background to make this twin size quilt. I decided to try something different with this modern style quilt and use Dream Puff , a high loft batting, and lighter quilting as these quilts are usually finished with dense quilting and thinner batting. But I needed this quilt to be soft and cuddly as it is a gift for a 14 year old girl who will use it as a couch quilt for watching movie in her newly decorated `teen hangout`room in their basement.
I quilted free hand flower motifs in the white diamond shapes and then added straight lines in the busy prints to highlight the lattice design in this pattern. When I took the quilt down to the dock this morning to get some picture I noticed a funny pattern on the ice. It seems my footprints from the day I took pictures of my Mod Pop quilt had iced up and resisted yesterdays melt so they stand out like big mushrooms!!
The bright orange flannel for the backing worked out so well and will make this a very warm quilt.
The ice has been a great backdrop this winter ( and spring) and keeps surprising me with great photo opportunities!
