I finished this quilt top in spring and is one of the three that I had long arm quilted. Don't you just love the quilting pattern she helped me choose? I like how it gives a nice modern contrast to this soft and sweet quilt.
The quilt top is made from a fat quarter bundle of Summerlove by Art Gallery Fabrics. It's a rare day that I buy a fat quarter bundle of a collection. This was one of those that I loved for a long time before deciding that it was one of those special ones that I still liked after months of seeing newer collections.
The colors in this collection just speak of a summer day at the beach, so maybe that's why this prairie girl found it so attractive. Anyways, I finally purchased a bundle of the whole collection and let it marinate on my shelf for awhile.
Eventually I used part of it to make this simple plus quilt. I didn't use a pattern, but if you'd like to make a similar design with a pattern, here's one called Cascade Quilt.
If you like this fabric collection, I purchased it at Moona Fabrics and it's still available. Link here and here. (Each of these listings is just half the collection so you'd need to purchase both colorways.) You may also notice that the quilt top included a cream colored text print which is not part of this collection. It just worked it's way in to the quilt somehow:)
I also ordered a yard of my favorite print to add to the back. I like the back on this one almost as much as the front!
