Last fall I won a bundle of Joel Dewberry's Heirloom during Rachel's Festival of Color. Now this collection would likely not have been a must-purchase for me, so it was neat to receive these fabrics that are slightly different from the usual 'me'. I decided to make a quilt top from one of the colorways as a little challenge to work with these 'not me' colors and prints. Of course I added quite a few other prints and solids to the mix, because I find it hard to work with just one collection in a quilt.
This top sat unfinished for awhile, but in my big cleanup (which I'm a bit stalled on, I'll admit) I finished this one up.
And yes, I know there is a tear in the corner of the sheet...
I think my favorite element in this quilt is the backing. I was saving this whimsical flannel for something special, but the colors were just right so I had to use it!
And of course the flannel makes this one extra snuggly which is great since it's the perfect lap quilt size (57x70)
And here's the whole thing. These kind of blocks are a lot of fun to make, so that was a good thing about this quilt. Looking at it now, I think I should have added even more solids... Live and learn though!
