I found this fabric at Tuesday Morning. I don't typically make such colorful, busy quilts, but something about these FQ bundles called out to me. I'm really glad I listened, I think it's wonderful! I see more color and more "busy-ness" in my quilting future! The fabric is a Riley Blake design called "Summer Song." The 2 FQ bundles were similar but one was in the orange scheme and the other in pink.
The quilt is for my younger daughter's BFF (Allie), who is moving far away to Minnesota next week, the day after school ends. I am so sad for my daughter. When she was 3, her BFF moved to Israel. When she was 4, her new BFF moved to northern Florida. Now, almost age 7, her BFF for the past 2 years is moving to Minnesota. We wanted to send her away with a really special gift that she could keep forever.
I made a small pillow to match and quilted it all with my go-to "meandering squiggly stuff" in a bright pink color. It measures 40" x 60" after washing.
I used a bright, striped binding (which also came in the FQ bundle). This quilt used a total of 12 FQs for the front and about 1.5 more for the binding. I think I'm in love!
