Spring is in the air

Super happy with how this little quilt top turned out! 

I started out faffing about with a small selection of soft & dreamy 2-toned fabrics from Karen Lewis' recent collection "hand stitched". Loving how they look with my scrappy assortment of Liberty prints and a few other rogue florals, very much a Spring feeling vibe happening here 💐
And, I also like how those minimalistic "hand stitched" fabrics contrast with the itty bitty busyness of the Liberties too! 

A couple of the directional prints sure were a fun challenge in my ability to pay attention to what I was doing. In the end I just went with those little irregularities, all part of the handmade touch!

A quick & easy project that sure packs a scrappy punch!

  1. So pretty, Linda! Great pattern for showing off all of those beautiful small scale Liberty florals. I have been lusting after those fabrics for awhile; wish I could find them for sale somewhere as a charm pack assortment rather than just as yardage. I don't know anyone who carries them locally either. Congrats on your quilt top finish!

  2. You are looking for spring as we head into fall. What a lovely, soft quilt top you've created. It shows off all your fabrics beautifully.

  3. What a pretty, soft-looking quilt top. You chose your fabric combo well, as I agree that the Karen Lewis prints are a nice, subtle contrast to the Liberty prints. This will be a fun top to quilt. Maybe in an allover design?
