For this year's quilt festival 2009 hosted by Amy of Park City Girl, I have chosen my simple, but very colourful Wallpapered Goodness quilt. My regular readers will remember this quilt of course, however of all the quilts I have made in the past couple of years, this one remains my favourite.
I designed Wallpapered Goodness to make use of the stunningly large floral fabrics I had collected over the years, fabrics designed by Kaffe Fassett and Philip Jacobs.
I cut generous strips of these handsome fabrics, and tempered them a little with small strips of dots, stars and damask.
The binding is my favourite Brandon Mably fabric, brown with hot blue spots which frames the quilt beautifully.
On the back of Wallpapered Goodness is the lush green and pink of Kaffe's Cabbage Rose fabric, I love being wrapped up in this fabulous fabric. A simple stripe of brown and blue damask, and orange roses complements the cabbage and roses.
The quilting was done on my home Janome sewing machine, in a simple freemotion swirly design, with some straight line quilting on the small stripes.
I'm so glad Amy is running the quilt festival this year, I'm off to get a cuppa and lose myself for a while in this virtual quilt show! xo
