I needed to make a new quilt for my spare bedroom, and a favourite quick and easy pattern is Turning Twenty by Tricia Cribbs. This design is really great for using up fat quarter bundles of a paricular collection of fabrics, and these fat quartes from the Little Sweetheart collection by Edyta Sitar for Laundry Basket quilts, were just perfect for what I wanted. These were suplied from Cross Patch, and this collection really was irrisistable.I wanted this quilt to be a bit larger, so it drapes over the sides of the bed, and used 25 FQ's of these gorgeous fabrics. The blocks are really easy to cut and piece together, and a quilt top is made in a matter of hours! I delivered the quilt top to Daisy May Quilting yesterday morning, and picked out a backing fabric (Val and John have a very impressive collection of extra wide backing fabrics) decided which all over quilting design I wanted and chose the same bamboo wadding that I'd had in a previous quilt as it drapes so well. While I'm waiting for the quilt to be completed, I might make a couple of cushions with some left over scraps!
