I saw the Morning call collection by Hoodie in December and immediately bought six different prints and matching Bella solids from Fat Quarter Shop. Color matching was done with the scientific scrutiny and involved meticulous calculations of color differences (thanks to my expert consultant!).
The basic blocks are from Amy Butler’s Pink Bliss quilt but I made more of them and improvised the layout and the vertical strips. The finished quilt measures 54 x 80 inches (137 x 203 cm). The back is a gray Egyptian cotton sheet. I quilted the thing in the ditch, randomly following the rectangles in the quilt top.
The binding is made out of the red spoon and fork print. I like the way the white and black utensils alternate. Extra points for those who spy the duck amongst all that wonky quilting!
Well needless to say that it took me a long time to finish this quilt. I started piecing it in February! During the spring I fell out of love with the fabrics, mostly due to growing annoyance at my own laziness. But have no fear, the finished quilt has found a loving home nonetheless.
