Vanilla and Blooms

It's been a busy month here so far. My husband had some minor surgery and we had two trips for some fun family get-togethers. One of them was to New York City. I'm actually from upstate New York and visited the city quite frequently as a kid. But it's been a long time and I took the short time we had to pop into some iconic creative shops - Purlsoho, the City Quilter and Mood. I came home very inspired and ready to sew!

Just before I left, I finished up my Vanilla and Blooms quilt.


I started with some fat quarters of Sweet as Honey by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery. As usual, I added some stash fabrics for a nice unique mix. The backing uses the hive fabric and the hexagon fabric from the line.


This is quite a large quilt for me, so I sent it off to one of our local longarm quilters, Jane Coons. I hope you can see the lovely design she quilted in each of the blocks...


One of my favorite quilts! {Do I say that about all of them??}



Be back sooner this time!

  6. I LOVE the Vanilla & Blooms pattern, also. Perhaps that is because I made a granddaughter's quilt with this pattern? For sure going to make it up at least one more time.
    Your quilt is lovely.

  10. Absolutely gorgeous! I love the mix of fabrics, scrappy stashy is always best, I think. I cannot believe how fast you put your quilts together
