"Date Night"

Hot off the presses....well not presses exactly....there were no presses involved in the creation of this quilt...but I did just finish it.

I think it is lovely and couldn't wait to share it with you.

The quilt features Bella solids and 6 of the new "candy" sized charm packs from Moda.  The fabric line is Cuzco by Kate Spain.

I took a more adventurous track on the quilting and used a bright and variegated thread from Signature called Fad 5.  You can't really tell in these photos, but it is bright like Cuzco and sparkles against the grey background.

For those who are curious....yes, I did make it for the Bake Shop.  I'm not sure when it will appear, but the pattern will be published there sometime in the next couple of months.  It is not difficult to make...but neither is it for the impatient sewest.  The quilt is constructed of 20 large blocks each made from rather small pieces.  (The bright bits are only 2" finished.)

I have to say, I am loving this designing thing.  It is such a kick to design something and then make it and have it turn out to look like what you had envisioned.  The only thing better is to design it, write a pattern, and then see someone else enjoy making it.

Well done! Congratulations!

BTW, I'm sure with that many pieces there were lots of presses involved! LOL
