Fresh Vanilla in green
I finished another quick quilt last night. It is the Fresh Vanilla quilt in the Quilts and More magazine. The original colorway was beige and white. I did it in green and white.
I have a young friend who decided to get married--fast. So, I needed a quilt that would go together quickly. When I viewed her registries, she had only chosen one item for her bedroom, and that one item had one fabric and one color--green. So, I figured it made sense to find one fabric for her quilt. I found this really nice green fabric, and began cutting. Last week.
The picture above doesn't really do it justice. Here is a close up, which may give you a better idea of what it looks like.
For the sake of time, I chose a very simple, very large meandering pattern. For this quilt, which is somewhere between a twin and a full size quilt, it took between 3 and 4 hours to quilt on my regular home (domestic) sewing machine.
Oh--and I put the rest of this green fabric in my Etsy shop today.
