I have spent the last few weeks working on the Fresh quilt from Camille Roskelley’s Simply Retro. I love this book and plan to make at least another two more quilts from it! (I have heard that if you plan to make at least two quilts from a book or magazine, it’s worth the purchase price.)
The fabric I chose is Daydream by Kate Spain. I love her vibrant use of pattern and color. A couple of years ago, when my sister flew in to visit from overseas, she spotted one of my quilts and I somehow ended up gifting her my most favorite quilt at the time, made up of Kate Spain’s Central Park line. I still haven’t gotten over it!
I snatched up this fat quarter and waited for the perfect project to make up for the previous quilt. This fabric is gorgeous.I am so excited to finish up this quilt. Right now I’m working on the backing. I also had enough leftover fabric to cut up the requirements for a Cheerio Quilt in Issue 8 of Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine.
Maybe I’ll send that one to my sister when I’m finished! 😉
