Each of these blocks I purchased from an antique store, put some teal blue sashing between and bordered them to create this beautiful quilt! I think the teal blue works great with the mix of fabrics already present and being solid in color really makes the blocks pop!
This is just one of the blocks. There are twelve total and each block is a 24 inch square, making this quilt a queen in size!
Here is a close up of the sashing. I did try to keep the patterns simple with a lot of dense quilting around the flowers to make each petal rise up that much higher! I used the 100% polyester (dense) batting by Quilters dream. I really really like this batting. This one is the heavy wt. and feels really nice!
The center of each flower looks like this. Nice and dense!
Close of the corner and feathery boarder.
More on the boarders!
Of course, this would not be complete without a picture of the back side! Did I ever tell you how much I love the back side of a quilt?????
Well, there is no shortage of pictures on this quilt. Please do let me know what you think. There is a lot of quilting on this quilt, but I feel that technique/patterns used and the boarder/sashing fabric choices have helped with keeping the antique feel of this quilt.!
The thread used for this quilt was a tan color which looks really nice with all the different colors used in this quilt. It really blends well in some areas just giving a cool texture look and then in others the stitches show super nice!
Another close up!
Here is the back side. Swirls upon swirls with a nice pink backing and tan thread!
Close up of the back! Great job Meghan, I hope you like it!
I just love these shams! So this one is made from left over quilt scraps and canvas. I have black piping 3/4 around with 1/4, the lower corner black lace. The pillow form is down. I love down pillow forms they just give shams the best shape!
Here is a close up of the screen print. I did this by ironing the fabric on to wax paper, this makes it stiff and also allows it to feed through your printer! Then I put this in the paper feed tray face down and printed my picture onto my fabric! Great, right!
This screen print was much easier to do, do not try to run burlap through your printer, it is much too thick. This is a screen print that I purchased from Plaid Pantry. It is the easiest to use, fun, and the results are perfect. This pillow is burlap which is very rough and dense. Take a close look though, I used my hot tool to embellish the chandelier with jewels!
This is a picture of the screen print that I used and the paint! They have all kinds of prints and colors of paint! What a fun and easy project to try out! If you try it, be sure to share your projects with me.
This is what the template looks like and can be used more than once. They post for use of 20+ times!
