I’m totally in love with this! Photos don’t do it justice, especially how beautifully the background works with the fabrics. Took me forever to piece this I’m so happy with it. I thought this would be an easy finish but it really was a lot of work. There’s several B&C lines in there and I want to use the Navy big flowers from #thegoodlifefabric for backing. #thimbleblossoms #bonnieandcamille #riseandshinequilt
I got this basted even though I had no help because fabrichusband @hhpuvogel is out of town. See that fabulous backing? I might just buy a bolt of it, perfect gingham for all B&C fabrics. Found it at Fabricgalore in London. Perfection! Now how to quilt it? #thimbleblossoms #summervillequilt #bonnieandcamille
There’s still a couple of borders missing but you get the idea... The color range is totally off anything I normally do but for whatever reason I wanted to make this pattern with this fabric. Pattern is #vanillaandblooms by #figtreeandco (just a lot smaller than the original), fabric by #amybutler
Finish! Decided to just use four prints from the center star for the border and not get too scrappy. Just realized the backing I had in mind is too small But I'm sure I can figure something out. Thanks for the inspiration @makervalley And thanks for all your sweet comments #thimbleblossoms #summervillequilt #bonnieandcamille
I never posted the finished mini-Quilt my husband @hhpuvogel made for the #thefabrichusbandswap with Ian @thefabrichusband so here it is. He made a foundation paper pieced gnome, free pattern by @unicornharts . He picked up the technique in a heartbeat but hand sewing binding was a bit of a struggle
It's been a couple of years since I saw @makervalley 's Christmas interpretation of #thimbleblossoms #summervillequilt (swipe to admire it). I have started to make my own and will shamelessly copy you, Holly. I plan to use my collection of trims and ribbons, too, to give each house an individual touch. Digged through my stash to find all the browns for the gingerbread houses and have cut them out. Now dive into my scraps for doors and windows
