It's MAY! Holy cow, this year has just flown by. My kids have 2+ weeks left of school, and we are all feeling the itch to be done...I love when my kids are in school, and I love having them home in the summer. The seasons seem to change right when you need them to.
Okay, I think this is my last pow wow quilt for a while...not forever, but for now. I've mentioned many times before how much I love this pattern. It just goes together so fast.
Color inspiration came from the backing fabric. Orange, pink, yellow and a tiny bit of blue-ish green.
I didn't get a great picture of the quilting, but it's quilted in flowers (you can see better here). It gives the quilt a nice crinkly look, but still soft. I didn't quilt my flowers very dense--I like to keep my baby quilts soft. Less quilting, usually results in softer quilts.
I started out with piecing the blocks with a white fabric I had on hand, ran out, so purchased some Kona Snow from Hobby Lobby, got home, made a few more blocks and realized they are different whites. I have no idea where the brighter white came from, I'm a Kona Snow purist, but rather than pretend like I didn't do it, I added in a few polka dot pieces to make it look planned. A happy accident, and I actually love the effect, it's very subtle.
