Quilt Pattern

My dear friend Mildred treated me to this lovely quilt pattern (in a roundabout way!). Thank you so much, Mildred! It's from Thimble Blossoms, an Etsy shop run by Camille Roskelley, who sells lovely patterns. You can see her blog here.

Isn't it charming? I love the simplicity, and all that open space to showcase lovely quilting. Now I just need to find someone who can produce some lovely quilting, huh? Hahaha!

I can't wait to get my hands on it, and go select the fabrics (because I doubt I'll be able to find the fabrics shown, although you never know!). Anyway, if I use different fabrics it will truly be one of a kind, right?

Imagine this quilt done in fall colors with mums where the daisy is. Or Christmas colors with poinsettias... oh - or beachy colors with seashells! I think the possibilities are endless. I'll work on the main version (the one shown) a little at a time, I think, when I need a break from studying. And, if I pass the boards, I might whip up the fall version for a giveaway. So, thank you again, Mildred! Your kindness definitely brightened my week!

Hi Terri, I love the quilt pattern. I have never attempted to make a quilt but I sure do love them. I think choosing the fabrics would be the fun part! I think with Autumn around the corner, you will enjoy sewing. Glad you found something you like!

Thank you, Mildred! Choosing the fabrics is fun. I hope I can come up with something beautiful.

Susie, I hope it turns out as well as I'm picturing it in my mind!

I need to find a way to quilt my quilt I'm making. I don't want to hand quilt it. I don't have a way of doing it anyways. I'm looking up techniques on using a plain old sewing machine. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them.


Cornbread? HA HA HA HHAAAAH! Love it!

Amy, I hope it will turn out well - can't wait to get the pattern!

Heidi, I left another comment on your blog - you can quilt with a regular machine, and it's so easy I don't know if I'll bother with a fancy machine even if I could afford it - as long as mine starts behaving again, that is!
