I have just finished Migration by Calico Carriage Quilts.  I just love how complex their patterns look, but they are so simple.  The queen is a large 90" x 102".

I used the fabrics from the Harvest Palette by Molly B's Studio for Marcus Brothers.  Brown and rust are not usually my color palette, but I just love this combination.
 I quilted the quilt with stacked peacock feathers allover.  

 I chose the tan check from the same collection for the backing and used the rust print for binding.

Thank you for letting me share.

Little Trips in the Party of Twelve

I have had the Little Trips pattern by Glad Creations hanging on the bulletin board in my office for a few weeks and could not decide what I wanted to use with this pattern.

So when then I walked past the section at the shop that had the Party of Twelve fabrics it was just screaming Little Trips.  I think it looks so vintage.  Just like something my Grandmother would have made.
I tried to get an overall photo of the quilt.  But it is huge a 91" by 103".  

 I just love how the pieced border keeps the background square.  It makes the little trips just float.
 I had a hard time deciding how to quilt it.  But finally decided to quilt in the ditch.  I don't usually quilt in the ditch but this called for the extra work.

I picked out a simple cream with a little circle from the Party of Twelve and of course I had to bind it in blue.

Hopefully it will give you ideas of what to do with your Party of Twelve.
