This quilt has been a long time in the making. I think I started collecting scraps for this about two years ago. Finally, about six months ago I committed to what I would actually do with them and started sewing. I got sidetracked because I didn't like how it was turning out and put it in the drawer for a few months. Sometimes I can complete a quilt start-to-finish in a short time. Sometimes they have to sit for a while so I can decide the best way to approach the project. This one definitely got better with time. I love how it turned out. I'm glad I took the time to really think it through.
Although I adore all the Heather Ross prints, I'm honestly not a hoarder. Many of these came from the donations of others. I gladly just took their scraps. I had a lot of fun putting this together. All the colored solids are Pure Elements by Art Gallery. Many of these colors can be found at Intrepid Thread. Also, Pink Castle Fabrics just started carrying some of the colors.
This is a twin quilt at 66" x 88". It's actually the perfect size to wrap completely around me while working at the computer. I love nice, big quilts to wrap up in. I don't think it will end up on a bed anytime soon.
I backed it with Sketch Flannel in Lipstick found at Pink Castle Fabrics. I felt daring using this bright pink on the back, but I love it. Flannel-backed quilts are so nice and cozy. As you can tell, I need it here. There is more than a foot of snow in our backyard. It makes it hard to photograph a white quilt with so much snow around.
