Neurotic Snail Quilt

Just a quick post to show this baby quilt I made for a friend.

corrina-1I framed a solid square with fun prints –  most of them from Made By Rae’s line Lotus Pond.  Three sides but leaving a little corner stone allowed for me to embrace my crippling neuroses and do some pattern matching.

corrina-22See the little snail HSTs in the sashing?  I like ’em.

It was almost a shame to fold this adorable Japanese fabric into binding.

Ugly Skirt


They said, “What are you thinking??”  They said, “What’s this from – a muumuu?” and I said, “I know- this fabric is ugly… but I love it.”

Like the suiting fabric from my Peplum Dress, this material was found in my husband’s grandfather’s attic.  I think it’s like FROM the 70s.  It’s a cotton, as far as I can tell.  And man – it’s brilliant.  The gold leafing actually has a bit of shine to it… amazing.


I used this tutorial from The Big Oak Tree as a launching point (I ended up cutting the rectangular pieces into A-line shapes, and I didn’t make a bow).
