A La Maison 9 Patch Quilt Top
I finished this quilt top yesterday. It's just a simple pattern of my own design from a jelly roll. The fabric is from Robert Kaufman and the line is called "A La Maison". I was drawn to the blues and browns in it and the coral reds/pinks. It is quite elegant with the scrollwork and pinstripes, yet sweet with tiny bees and dragonflies in the fabric. The sashing is Bella Snow and the cornerstones are made with Kona Delft. I was at a LQS (1 1/4 hours away from me) on the weekend in combination with a quilt show. The shop had some amazing sales, including a 7-11 sale, where one metre was $7, 2 from the same bolt was $11 and the prices just went down from there! I got a lot of fabric from this sale that I will be using for backgrounds, etc. Including this one I used for the border. It is a reproduction from RJR and Thimbleberries called Sunshine and Shadow. I am loving reproduction fabrics more and more :) Lucky me since that seems to be what my local LQS specializes in. (Yes, I said local local quilt shop, since it is 15 min away).
