. . . & she seems to have taken her time getting here. . .! (Well. okay - I admit it. . . it was me who took a bit longer than I thought to get the pattern written & printed.
Ellie uses some of the fabrics in my 'Celebration' line . . . (have a said how much fun it is to play with all the options?!?) . . . & if I could (time-wise) - I'd love to make this design - using lots of different fabric styles. . . brights, plaids, reproductions, batiks. . . you name it - I'd love to see it in this quick-to-make design.
For my quilt, I wanted a design that was simple & airy (& yet vintage)- & yet looked more complicated than it really was. For the blocks - they are actually assembled the same way - just with the colors/values changed.
Here's Ellie - hanging in my booth at Fall Quilt Market. . . (she's the perfect nap size - or as a topper for a twin size bed . . . & the design would be simple to make larger for bigger needs).
. . . & here are the two blocks that are simply alternated. . .
I don't know about you - but sometimes I just love a quilt that doesn't make me think too much. . . but still looks more complicated than it really is.
(Oh. . . & for those of you who have asked - or might be wondering. . . yes, there will be patterns/directions for making the sham & pillows that were in my booth. Thanks you guys. . . for keeping me on my toes!)
Hoping you have a great weekend!
