This cute quilt is for Erin, I knew the moment I laid eyes on this Michael Miller fabric, I had to make a quilt for Erin.
Everything about the fabric is her, orange, favorite color. Large graphic print with a modern edge and a touch of gray to calm it down, is also her.

I was very careful in cutting the tulips for the center of the quilt, as I wanted them to line up across the quilt. The border was an addition as the quilt was a bit small for a lap. The quilt shop owner suggested to cut just the flowers for the border. I loved her idea and it seems to frame the quilt.
After Kaitlyn's wedding, I went to a 3 day quilting retreat, I really needed some "me" time. I had such a fun time and enjoyed good company and good food. I worked on a very big quilt , 30 hours of sewing time, plus about 10 hours of cutting. I finished the big project Sunday afternoon. I knew I could make this Colorblock quilt with the couple hours remaining, as it was cut out and ready to go.
I did finish the body of the quilt and just had to add the border to the quilt at home. It was such a fun and quick project to make. Erin is thrilled with her new lap quilt and I am thrilled to find a new pattern. I think this one will be perfect for baby quilts and it is fat quarter friendly!

Here is the back, the goldish yellow color matches perfectly to the yellow birds on the front of the quilt.
I have a backlog of quilts to share with your from the spring and summer. I have been sending some projects slowly to the quilter and then it takes a while to find someone available to hold them for photos.
