I am SO, so, so thrilled with how this came out!
Made using an entire fat quarter bundle of Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks voile collection.
The back is a simply pieced combination of Kona Ash, Kona Snow, Moda Bella aqua and a strip of leftover Little Folks.
I made the blocks 15" square (14.5" square finished) and used a total of 36 blocks for a quilt that measures 87" by 87". The design was inspired by SouleMama's Little Folks pillows in this post.
I decided to quilt it with simple straight lines in a grid pattern. This is absolutely the softest quilt EVER!
I must admit that piecing was a little more challenging with the voile because it is so slippery! I tried using Best Press as I pieced but it didn't seem to make any difference in stabilizing it.
A few other things I did was I took Anna Maria's advise to use a smaller machine needle since it is a more fine fabric. Some people have also had fraying problems so I shortened my stitch length a bit to mitigate anything of that sort.
I also read that it was somewhat of a nightmare to sandwich and baste a voile quilt but I had no problems at all with shifting. I just used a ton of pins and thankfully all went well!
The vibe this quilts gives off is cheerful, summery, luxurious happiness! I would love for it to stay with me but this is a custom order for a friend...I know she will be ecstatic when she sees it!
