This was a quilt which I did for fun because I loved the fabric. I actually finished it last year but only got around to posting pictures now because I thought it might be a gift and didn’t want to ruin the surprise. But it has long since found it’s happy home, so I’m free to post!
The fabric line is Good Company by Jennifer Paganelli. I’m a huge fan of her prints. The fabric is delightfully soft and would probably drape nicely. I would love to make a dress out of one of her fabrics at some point although I think this particularly line is out of print now. 🙁
These were actually part of a wide jelly roll — each strip was 6” wide by width of fabric.
I then cut each strip into thirds. Probably about 14 inches long each.
Put them in columns and rows and there you have it.
I had fun with the quilting and used the designs as inspiration, but also going for a sort of whimsical look. You can really see the quilting by looking at the back where I of course used minky because it feels so cuddly but also because I knew it would show off the quilting nicely:
For the binding I used some green and white striped fabric from a different Jennifer Paganelli line (can’t remember which one though). I think it compliments the prints, adds interest and ties it all together.
I love how it turned out. I thought it might be a baby gift, but then the person I was thinking of giving it to had a boy so I had to change gear for them. I thought I might keep it for myself but we’re amassing quite a collection of quilts. When my mom came to visit, she saw it and loved it and now it lives with her (and I still get to use it when I visit 🙂 ).
