Time To Make A Sample

This fabric came in about a month ago. It really has not sold much so I knew it was time to make a sample.  

The three panels are so adorable!

They are just perfect for any girl.

I did not have a pattern that would lend itself to this fabric so I knew I had to design my own.

My first attempt was the layout below. I actually completed the top like this but was not happy with it when it was done. I ripped everything out and started over.

This is what I ended up with. I am very happy with it and I believe it is a very good use of that fabric.

It can be difficult to take pictures on a windy day. 

Here is a close up of the freehand overall quilting.

I wrote a pattern for this but knew that it had to be tested. So I needed to find other fabric that would work well for this pattern.

 This nautical fabric arrived a couple weeks ago and also needed a little push. 

Lou tested the pattern for me and it came out very nice. It is definitely a very masculine quilt. 

The pattern and fabrics shown here are available now at Quilt Vine.

i like both of these quilts. Your quilting is very nicely done. Good for your creating your own pattern.
