I'd had an idea floating around in my head for a while and this was the perfect opportunity. I wanted the project to have 3 things:
- Scrappy stripes. Liberty is expensive, so I wanted a project that would make use of all the little scraps that we have (or of a fat sixteenth bundle).
- Flannel batting. My first quilt used flannel and it's the best. It's super comfy and is still our go-to couch quilt. Plus, you don't need super dense quilting since it's a woven product, unlike cotton batting which need the quilting to hold it together.
- Tana Lawn. Backed in yards of Liberty Lawn yumminess, this is the softest!! The binding is lawn too. Yum!
I'm so pleased. I loved it so much that I hand quilted it in a marathon session. About 60 feet of quilting. Oy!
I could go on and on about how much I love this quilt. The reds, blues, and pinks in the Liberty Lifestyle Bloomsbury collection made me so happy all over my cutting table. A bit nautical, a bit fancy, a bit fun.
And that lawn back: a dream.
