It's been a hundred years since I blogged. Well not quite a hundred years but several months & even though I haven't blogged in a while I've been busy being a mom, started a new job, cross stitching, & even finished a few quilts (but I'll share those in a later post). What I want to share with you right now is my latest quilt. I used the new Cascade Quilt Pattern by my sweet friend Susannah of Susannah Kate Sews for this quilt. It turned out better than could have hoped for. I love it! Thanks for letting me be one of the first to test out your new quilt pattern.
I loved how simple the pattern was to follow & when a few questions did arise (turns out I'm a terrible pattern reader, lol) she was so quick to get back to me. I think this pattern would be perfect for the beginning quilter or someone who has been quilting for years. The awesome feature of this quilt pattern is you can make it using 10 fat quarters & a few yards of fabric. Also there is very little waste. How awesome is that? It's the perfect size too. Not too small, not too big.
My little guy wanted me to take a picture of him with the quilt. Such a silly kid!
I used Aneela Hoey's Little Apples fat quarters that I bought a few years back when I went to Sewing Summit. I just hadn't found the right project to use it on until now. The backing & binding fabric I purchased at Joann's & Hancock Fabric.
