I want to take a break in my Christmas tour to show you my quilt I just got back from the quilter and quickly bound. Most of you know of my love affair with the Red Rose Farm fabric by Elizabeth Scott of The Late Bloomer.
The quilt is made with about 80% Red Rose Farm, a bit of Lecien's Flower Sugar and some yellow buffalo check that I had in my stash. It is backed with a large hot pink on white polka-dot.
Thank you to all of you who sent me messages when I inquired about the proper way to do embroidery. I have been in love with these vintage dish towel transfers for quite some time and knew they would look great on a quilt.
The quilter did a wonderful job, though it is hard to see in these pictures. She even quilted tea pots into the cake stand blocks.
My kitchen walls are yellow and the kitchen is decorated in aqua, yellow and pink with a retro feel to it. This hangs on the wall in the kitchen and really ties the room's theme to the vintage items I have placed there. I used almost every bit of the fatquarter bundle of Red Rose Farm. With the scraps I would like to make some placemats.
A big thank you to Elizabeth for designing such a wonderful line of fabrics that will certainly keep my kitchen bright and happy in the cold, dark, dead of winter here in Michigan. See you tomorrow for more Christmas decorating pictures!
