A New Bed Quilt for Me!

I have had a very busy March and not as much sewing as usual, but I did accomplish a few things.  This top was actually completed Saturday.  I started it at a quilt retreat at the beginning of March.  It gets added to my HUGE pile of quilts to be quilted.  

Back story on it.... Last fall I was with friends at a quilt shop and the owner was showing us a quilt she was going to make for her granddaughter.  The pattern was Blueberry Granola by Madison Cottage Design.  I already owned the pattern and ran back and got 3 charm packs of the Catalina Ultra Violet line by Marti Michell.  I got home and looked at my pattern and realized 3 charm packs would only make a baby size quilt.  I found a FQ pack online of the entire line (28 fabrics) and eventually cut it all up into 5" charm squares.  I only have 8 squares left out of all those 5" squares! 

I got the border fabric at my LQS, she didn't have the whole line but happened to have a stripe and the black.  This will be new a top quilt for our bed.  I have always loved purple floral fabrics!


I had a closeup, not sure where it went and I have to head to work!

Beautiful, maybe it'll have to be scooted up the que for quilting so you can enjoy it soon. Will we see anything in the show this weekend?

I don't know how I missed this post, but your new bed quilt is GORGEOUS! I am not a huge fan of purple, but it's beautiful in these fabrics and quilt design. Great finish!
