Karen’s Quilt

Happy 2016!  I realize we’re already more than halfway into January, but I’m a little slow getting started on quilting this month, so this is my first post of the year.  Finally!

To start the year off, I’m sharing a quilt I gifted for Christmas.  This was a gift for my aunt who lives in the frigid Midwest.  A quilt has gotta come in handy this time of year, don’t you think?


The fabric I chose is the Flirt collection by Dear Stella.  I thought it would fit my aunt’s personality and style!  I also mixed in a few pink and gray solids that I had tucked away in my fabric stash.


I kept the back of this quilt pretty simple and used Robert Kaufman’s Quilter’s Linen in Platinum.


The Quilter’s Linen is a good choice if you want a fabric that has a bit of a textured look.  Maybe you want something solid-like but not quite a solid; then this is a good option.


That’s it for today.  I’m looking forward to lots of quilting in 2016.  And let’s be real, lots of fabric collecting too!
