Jelly Girl

The first of my 3 quilts is done! The pattern is "Jelly Girl" by Fig Tree. I had so much fun choosing these fabrics last Feb. in warm, sunny Florida. The quilt reminds me of our trip.
The fabrics are a combination of lines from Amy Butler, Heather Bailey. Patty Young and Sandi Henderson - some of my favorite modern designers. I chose to fussy-cut the Amy Butler border fabric to highlight the little bit of aqua blue in it. I even had to miter the corners.

The quilting is overall and I chose a swirly design. I think it fits the twirly look.

The backing is covered in colorful dots. Love it!

While in California, my daughter and I worked on lots of crafty projects. Visit her blog to see more!
