My favorite quilt thus far...that I made...

This isn't my favorite as far as tender memories go. No baby or child attached to this quilt. But is it my prettiest because I am in LOVE with the fabrics. I made it for my bedroom. And I LOVE it. This is still my favorite fabric line in 2 years! It is from House Inc's fabric line. I made this dress out of it too.

I love me some vintage looking prints. I love the blues and browns. I love the faded flowers!
I really loved this pattern too. It was fun to follow. The pattern I got out of American Patchwork and Quilting. I think it is from Heather of Anka's treasures.
Okay, check out the beautiful quilting my aunt did. I LOVE getting my quilts back from her, the quilting makes the quilt so much prettier.
And doesn't it look pretty on the porch swing? I love to snug in it. I feel like it came out of an old trunk. I hope you love it half as much as I do. Thanks for looking.

This quilt is GORGEOUS! My bedroom colors are chocolate brown and pale blue. I love them, very rich but light and airy at the same time. Your fabric choices are amazing.
