I may be a while finishing this one off. I'm going to try and use up every last scrap of Tufted Tweets in the backing. That will mean there will be a mass of seams going on across the front as well as the back. So, because the front seams are on the bias; I will undoubtedly chicken out of machine quilting it for fear of stretching/puckering/ruining it and am going to hand quilt it instead and use some Perle 8 thread. Just because I've never used it before and I got a good deal on a whole selection on Ebay and am itching to try them out on something.
I used the pattern from the Kaffe Fassett book Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts
For copyright reasons I'm not allowed to upload an image of the quilt pattern I used. However, as luck would have it, a newsletter from the Cotton Patch came through my door the other week and they feature the very same quilt. Here it is in Kaffe Fasset fabrics:
Looks better in Tufted Tweets don't you think ;-)
I used various Kona cotton solids that I had to hand as well as a couple of heavier weight greens that had been gathering dust. I also added a patterned green to one block only. See if you can spot it.
As of today, Tufted Tweets is my favourite fabric line.
