my happy quilt

retro flower quilt + remix fabric / ann kelle

Lookie at my new quilt! Isn’t it the most happiest little quilt you’ve seen? When I first saw the Retro Flower Quilt  by The Sometimes Crafter I just about fell out my seat. It reminded me of Orla Kiely and you all know how I adore her. I decided it would be the perfect quilt for another favorite of mine, my Remix fabric prints. I worked with my friend Brooke to sew this beauty. She was so patient with me. All the prints used in this quilt are from my Remix fabric collection (listed below). Picking the prints and putting them in order was no easy feat, but Brooke was patient with me and allowed me to change my mind over, over and over again. (Thank you, Brooke!) It turned out awesome and now I’m a happy girl with a happy quilt. If you love this quilt and want one yourself, Christina is offering the pattern HALF OFF through May 5th. (Enter the code: retrolove).
