Tiger Lily – In Progress

Happy post-Thanksgiving, everyone.  Hope you all had a wonderful holiday.  I have family in town visiting so I’ve been busy doing a few touristy things around the city.  Luckily they’ve been to New York many times before so they’ve hit the major attractions in previous visits.  This trip is a bit more low-key and we’re just enjoying the city, especially since it’s the holiday season, which adds a little extra magic to New York.

But back to quilting.

Before Thanksgiving hit, I was busy finishing up my Tiger Lily quilt.  I finally got around to buying the Heather Ross Tiger Lily fabric.  I’m not sure what took me so long because I love it!  I did have to sit on this one for a few weeks before I decided on a pattern.  I went back and forth before I landed on a decision, and I’m glad I took some extra time to think about it because I’m pretty pleased with the finished quilt top.  But I give all credit to the fabric, which makes this quilt.

I love the colors, the prints, everything.

For the back of the quilt, I think I might stick with Tiger Lily fabric instead of mixing in another designer or collection.  I really love the pink forest print and I’m leaning towards that one for the back, but I also love the green forest print too.   Or maybe I’ll choose something completely different!  I might have to think on that for a bit.

Hope you all have a great week.  I’ll be back soon with new projects!
