Honey...

The first of two finished quilts I have to show this week. Yeah!
The pattern is Honey and on the cover of Modern Patchwork. The fabric is mostly Marmalade with some pieces from earlier lines by Bonnie and Camille. The lovely quilting was done by my local longarm quilter Candy.


The back of the quilt has the aqua houndstooth print from Vintage Modern. Oh how I love that print!


I changed the pattern a bit by not using any of the half hexagons that border the quilt. I love how it floats and is a little off-center. A completely different look from the original.




And I have to share with you my Birthday/Christmas gift to myself. This set of Patchwork measuring cups and spoons is adorable. They're from West Elm - a little splurge that just makes me happy! . . . Cindy

  9. I love seeing the quilts all finished and hanging up since I usually see only the bits I am quilting on. Beautiful job Cindy. Candy
