Latest finish

I wanted to add my latest finished quilt!

It stars Sakura Park cherry blossom fabric by Moda.  I purchased a layer cake of 10" squares.  I think it had 42 different squares, in shades of pinks, blues, greens and white.  I used the Piece of Cake pattern from quilt In A Day.  Fun, easy, and fast, and so pretty!

I used a stencil design to quilt the larger sections of the blocks, feathers in the rectangles, and cherries in the small squares, using Aurifil 50wt in white.  I used Aurifil 40wt in variegated pinks for the feathers in the border.  What I love about Aurifil is that it doesn't break!  All of those stitches, over 10 bobbins, and no breakage.  50wt white is in the bobbin, to match the backing.  I used a light pink in the needle and bobbin for the binding.  Yes, all Aurifil.  I'm totally and Aurifil girl!  I need to get more of the 40wt for sewing clothes.  I like the durability in the seams!

So pretty, and large enough for a Twin bed.  It's currently available in my Etsy store.
I love finishing quilts!
