I finally finished my Dream On quilt!
And I love it! This quilt has been in the works forever. I started it at the beginning of last year, and of course soon became distracted by other projects. These last few weeks, while winding down my maternity leave, I vowed that I would finish it before I returned to work! And I did! I just barely made it, finishing it late Thursday evening, and I go back to work on Monday.
It's about 52"x70", made from 4 charm packs of Dream On by Urban Chiks for Moda. The background is Kona Ash, and the layout of offset diamonds was inspired by this quilt. I had originally planned to arrange the half square triangles in large concentric diamonds (kind of like this) but as I set out to sew them together I changed my mind!
The backing is yardage of one of the prints from the Dream On collection.
The binding is a pink Kona from Joann's, I think it's just Pink (or maybe Baby Pink? I don't remember). I quilted it with gray Gutermann thread, with a light pink Gutermann in the bobbin for the back, and for the machine stitching of the binding.
I love it! And this one is mine, all mine! Well, until my 4 year old daughter steals it from me--with every quilt, it's, "Ooh, mommy, is this one for me?" If she asks, how can I resist? :)
