I couldn’t resist this Cori Dantini fabric when I saw it at a local quilt shop. The panels are adorable.
wpid-IMG_4567-2014-04-16-21-24.jpg
I found an earlier fabric lineavailable on Etsy and combined them to have 14 unique panels in 2 sizes.
wpid-IMG_4568-2014-04-16-21-24.jpg
I don’t usually do borders, but the pink and flowers seemed to tie everything together.
wpid-IMG_4574-2014-04-16-21-24.jpg
It’s backed with 4 different fabric that echo the collage elements in the prints.
wpid-IMG_4583-2014-04-16-21-24.jpg
It’s quilted with a closely spaced square spiral.

My cats love it as much as I do.

I had accidentally made an extra umbrella girl. Why not put two girls on one quilt?
