Hello Friends, I hope you had a good weekend. It seems like mine just evaporated away because I spent most of my weekend sleeping! That aside, I did receive my quilts featured in Quilter’s World‘s April 2012 issue back from the editor over the weekend.
I actually have two featured quilts in the issue. I shall show you “Fresh and Refreshed” first.

The quilt is made with Benartex‘s Backyard Buttferly fabrics. The fabric designs are lighthearted, fun and soft.
The quilt design itself is a bit more contemporary than my usual style. I don’t often piece with templates, but I really enjoyed template-piecing this quilt top.
Quilting on this quilt is just as informal. I quilted an allover design of square-petaled flowers over the quilt center, some loops in one of the sashings, and more free-handed floral motifs on the border. I used Aurifil Mako 50 Cotton threads for quilting and piecing this quilt. Batting used was Hobbs Tuscany Silk.
Hope you enjoyed my Fresh and Refreshed! Happy Monday!
