I’m so happy to share this finished quilt with you. Why, you ask? Because it is one of my very favorites. My love for it is mostly due to the fabric. It is the Tiger Lily collection by Heather Ross and it is perfection.
Don’t you love those colors?
I was looking back to find when I first shared the quilt top and it was almost a year ago. You can read that blog post here. It took me a while to finish it because I didn’t know what fabric I wanted to use for the back. Then the obvious answer came to me late this summer.
The back uses Heather’s soon-to-be-released collection, Sleeping Porch. And now that I’m writing that I realize that I haven’t shared the Sleeping Porch project I worked on with Heather on the blog! I know I’ve talked about it on Instagram but I haven’t shared it here. I’m going to write about it more later, but the short story is that I made a quilt for Heather using her Sleeping Porch collection, and the quilt was used for the new line’s lookbook.
Anyway…I had a bunch of fabric leftover from that project and it was the perfect option to use for the back of my Tiger Lily quilt. The colors worked, the prints worked, and the new Sleeping Porch collection is made with super soft cotton lawn.
Normally, I tend to do more straight line quilting, but for this quilt I left my comfort zone and went with a flower design. I’m really not a “flowery design” kind of person, but it just fit the theme of fabrics.
And that is my finished Tiger Lily quilt.
I have two more projects to share with you…just as soon as I get them photographed!
