Bright on white

Fresh from the dryer quilts are hard to resist for monkeys jumping on the bed.  This quilt turned out better than I’d hoped and was a birthday gift for my Mom.  The backing fabric I bought from Lori is fabulous…usually I stick with small print fabrics for the backing, but not anymore.
Now that the snow has come my boys are going bonkers being inside all day.  We’ve kept busy doing lots of crafts….salt dough is always a favorite.
I’m really sick of kids crafts.  :)
I got the memo that you want to know what that cute grey bunting fabric is from my last post!  It’s Sweetwater’s newest line called Reunion.  Yardage comes out in January and pre-cuts hopefully will start popping up soon?  Not sure about that one.  But that’s what it is!

    I just went into a shop in Southlake, Texas "Quilting Stash", they have 2 stores and it had all bright fabrics. I love the quilt and the fabric you used. It is on my to do list.

    Love the quilt, it reminds me of Hawaii. We lived there for four years, courtesy of the Air Force, would go back in a minute.

    I just love this patter! Well, all your patterns- they are so quick and easy to put together. I have my Retro Hello Betty JR that I will use for this particular pattern. Can't wait!

    Love the colors in your mom's quilt Allison! Beautiful. It's always good to have some one give them a "test run" before gifting them, isn't it? Best of luck with baby girl! Can't wait to see some pics. Jenn

    I almost commented on your last post, but about that Pez jelly roll! I love that print, but I recall you using up your last scrap sometime last year (?) and saying how you were done with it for a while. Looks like your Pez mojo came back! ;)

    The whole thing is fabulous!!

    Oh My! What a lovely quilt!

    I received a jelly roll of it for Mother's Day and it is not what I would normally get for myself. I was sooooo pleased with it.

    Your quilt for your mom is gorgeous!

    Your quilt looks fantastic. Love the contrast with white.
    Thanks so much for posting your salt dough recipe. I have my little nephew this morning and we made this recipe. We had so much fun creating. :0)

    Gorgeous quilt! My kids love salt dough, and it's been a while since we've made anything with it. Thanks for the idea!

    I'm not a kids craft person myself. The girls are suddenly into colouring books and that has been a life/sanity saver for me.

    Wonderful quilt and the backing is simply perfect!

  25. Melissa November 18, 2011 at 4:21 pm #

    Glad you mentioned White Place – I hadn't heard about it. We will definitely stop by on Saturday.

    I love brights and nothing like black and white pops colours. I love the back of this quilt! I am wishing I was your mother!
