One of my projects on retreat last week was this top. The pattern is "Stems" by Fig Tree Quilts. I love Orla Kiely and the quilt was inspired by one of her signature designs.

I first saw the quilt done by Caroline of Trillium Design. I could say I was inspired by her quilt, but really I totally copied hers. You can see her version here. Mine uses a gray Essex Linen background with prints from FMF, and Erin McMorris' line La Dee Da.

The back is ready and I'm on to quilting it!

. . . Cindy


  1. Cindy, that is wonderful! I am (totally) going to copy both of you!

  2. oooohhhhhh! Aaaaahhhh! What size is this beauty?

  3. Great colors and I love the pattern!
    Did you see the new Method hand soaps that feature Orla Kiely designs on the bottles? They are at Target.

  4. Very pretty! I love Orla's design and it really looks great in quilted form!

  5. It's just gorgeous! I love my Stems quilt...can't wait to get it quilted! I might need another one like yours, though!

  6. Your version is beautiful! Love this quilt design so much - great job!
