Put spiderwebs on a quilt, however, and I'll wrap myself up in them and daydream all day. That said, March was my month as quilter for my Do. Good Stitches Happiness Circle and guess what I asked for? These lovely beauties in blues, pinks and purples with low volume backgrounds following this tutorial:
At the same time as all the blocks started pouring in, tragedy struck a family close to the community I grew up in and I knew that this quilt needed to go to a little girl whose world had been forever changed. I hoped it would envelop her in webs of love.
I had seen Holly's AMH Velveteen backing and was as smitten as a kitten when my friend Pam at Mad About Patchwork got a bolt in. When I told her I would like to buy some for the back of this quilt, she wouldn't hear of such a thing and donated this uber luxe fabric for the backing. It is so soft I had to stop every so often and remind myself that I was supposed to be sewing and not snuggling. I now feel like I need to buy a bunch just for me, so I can snuggle whenever I want. It's a good thing she has some left!
I love the texture the low-volume background prints lend to the webs.
Kudos, Happiness Circle. Every month you continue to astound me with your talents and skills. I am so lucky to have you ladies in my life!
