Changing It Up

With spring having officially arrived a couple of weeks ago, I figured it was time to lighten up the decor around here.  That means some fresh tulips for the mantel and a truly spring-like quilt for the bed. 

This is Queen Anne's Lace, a quilt I made in 2005.  I was in a shabby chic phase at the time, and this quilt uses some the best prints from Paris Flea Market by 3 Sisters for Moda and Hannah Bella by Robyn Pandolph for South Seas. I still have fabric from those lines in my stash. I hope they don't look dated by the time I get around to using them as they are a couple of my all-time favorite fabric lines.   

Queen Anne's Lace was made using the half log cabin block, set on point with setting triangles in a pink floral print.   It was quilted with an all-over feathery motif.  It has been washed a few times (necessary with all the white) so has a textured look and feel. 

Welcome SPRING!

Your quilt makes a beautiful room. I think shabby chic will always work. They are our antiques of tomorrow!

Those two fabrics lines will never look dated. They are just gorgeous combined in your quilt Cathy.
