The fabric is Heirloom by Joel Dewberry in Citrine.
I used mostly the one orange fabric for the binding but stuck a few random pieces of other patterns in to mix it up.
I quilted it in an all over stipple, not too small scale, with some 'hidden' gems. There's some hearts, flowers, and her initials.
|There actually is a heart there.|
|That's one of the (kinda) flowers.|
The backing is my favourite pattern from the line, and I bought that little stat square from a local lady who does that sort of thing with her embroidery machine. I knew as soon as I saw the idea that I wanted to sew it into the quilt, and it worked out smashingly.
I was going to put it in the centre of the quilt with the floral pattern all around--I have lots more--but I decided that this way I a) didn't have to cut any of the patterned fabric, I just used the length I'd trimmed a while ago, and b) I could save my yardage for something else, like a bed skirt or curtains or something!
I think she likes it!
