After months of barely leaving my neighborhood, trying to stay home and stay safe, I am slowly entering back into the real world, although the real world looks quite different and certainly feels different than pre-coronavirus. And I imagine that feeling will continue until we get a vaccine, but it’s good to have some things, like quilt photos, back on.
And on that note, here is one of my quarantine quilt finishes.
This quilt is made with the Fantasy collection from Sally Kelly, with some Artisan Cottons from Windham mixed in.
I’m very pleased with the final quilt. The pattern, the colors…everything works for me.
I pulled one of the fabrics from the Fantasy collection and used that for the back.
Typically, I like to use a different fabric for the back of my quilts than one that I used on the front, but when Sally Kelly designed this collection she offered a handful of the prints in cotton lawn, and I thought one of those would be nice to use for the back.
I really like the lightweight feel of cotton lawn, and when you have a larger-sized quilt like this one is, I think sometimes it’s nice to use a lighter-weight fabric, like a cotton lawn, for the back.
This quilt has now found a home draped across my bed. I’ll have to take a picture of how I styled it in my bedroom with my duvet cover. Keep your eyes peeled on my Instagram account for that. Until then, WEAR A MASK.
