Retro Femininity

This week has gone by so fast for me.  My big accomplishment for this week  was that I was able to ship out the quilt I made using Free Spirit’s Dolce fabrics:

These aren’t usually my style of fabric. They are a bit more retro that what I am used to, but I thought the blue and pink floral made this retro all soft and feminine:

I didn’t think I would, but I really enjoyed making this block:

The quilting was nowhere near the intensity of my Cascade of Leaves quilt due to time constraint. But I did venture out from my traditional white or beige and used a blue thread, something I have never done before:

This quilt is slated for feature in The Quilter‘s September 2010 issue later this year:

I like the quilt backing fabric a lot:

Thank you again for stopping by.  I always enjoy your visit.  Do drop me a line so that I can visit you back.  Meanwhile, have a fantastic weekend.

  1. Wendy~ I am always amazed when a quilter gets all those points to come together so perfectly! Beautiful job! And I like the backing fabric alot, too!

  3. I think this is the first time I’ve seen any Dolce made up and it looks so much better than I always thought it would! What a pretty, pretty quilt! Thanks for sharing!

  4. This is beautiful! so springy and sweet! I got a couple of those fabrics as swatches in a recent online order and now after seeing this I want more, larger pieces!

  5. That quilt is just beautiful. Imagine that quilt on your bed during summer when its hot. How lovely and cool it will look. Your quilting is divine.

  6. Those fabrics are just lovely together. It looks like something I would pull out of my grandma’s trunk and curl up with in a hammock. (The good stuff at my grandma’s… no green and yellow couchs :o)
