My “Tahitian Shawl” quilt top for my Mum’s birthday.
I really can’t say enough just how much I LOVE this book (HERE)
and I hope to try and make just about every quilt in it =0)
This throw quilt is much larger than I expected…
ha ha, don’t know why I never grasp the dimensions in my mind correctly!
The pattern instructions were very clear and easy to follow.
The first few “rounds” I whipped up the first day
and then I completed a round here and there as I had time.
Really though, it came together very quickly!
Martha Nelgley large floral fabrics (purchased from Alewives HERE) were my primary inspiration for this quilt
and a touch of Kaffe Fassett and Jennifer Pagnelli are used in the small borders.
This is my first “girly” quilt I have made and it was so fun working with the pink and purples (as per my Mum’s request).
Now to get some backing fabric…it takes a whopping 4 1/2 yards!
This may take a while as I used all of my fun money to order a super cute (and funky!) pair of Kate Spade eye glasses…
I so look forward to being able to see clearly!
