If you have our quilt book, Country Girl Modern, you might recognize this quilt…..Bohemian Rhapsody. It’s been a favorite quilt of both Kelli and I.
Well over the summer a couple different blog readers had sent us fabric. Each time I set anything that was colored in yellows, peaches and greens into a box with the intention of trying out this same pattern in another color way.
This fall we finally got the quilt made. I love it.
In the original color way we’ve always loved the quilt….This looks great too all completely scrappy.
I tried out a new quilting motif. I found the “Bauble” design in Step-by-Step Free-Motion Quilting: Turn 9 Simple Shapes into 80+ Distinctive Designs Best-selling author of First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting. It’s my favorite machine quilting book. I highly recommend it.
I took the “Bauble” and added a ribbon to it to make it edge to edge. I ended up really liking it. The design is a little whimsy.
It was fun to make the quilt with a little more traditional fabrics. In the book we wrote the directions with yardage cuts. This time around we did it completely scrappy.
This quilt doesn’t have a home yet. Right now we’ll probably keep it with our quilts that we take when we go out and talk about quilting…but someday, it will more on to a charity donation.
If you’re interested in the pattern you can find it in our book. To purchase an autographed copy, follow this link.
Today we’re sharing our finished quilt at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Crazy Mom Quilts, and Link a Finish Friday. I’ve been really busy this week so stop back this evening and check out the charity quilt that I finished up.
