Boy, this quilt like bringing spring into your house! My Typewriter's Patchwork felt really wintery but this one says nothing but spring.
I saw this free pattern, Ribbon Box Quilt (PDF), on Hawthorne Thread's newsletter a while back and thought it would be perfect to show off the beautiful fabrics in Leah Duncan's new Meadow collection.
I didn't buy the whole collection so in order to have 12 different fabrics as the pattern calls for I added in some various prints by Anna Maria Horner, Juliana Horner and an aqua chromatics. I think they work really well together in this pattern!
On the back, I used some Meadow prints along with a Pearl Bracelets in yellow and Kona Cotton solid in Cypress. The Cypress coordinates PERFECTLY with Meadow!
What a fun quilt this was to make! Figuring out the layout (and remember what went where) was a bit tricky so I cut a small strip off the selvedges and made a little layout on paper. It helped a ton to keep everything organized! But I think I may have been a bit hasty in placing the fabrics because I wish I had made one of the greens vertical instead of both being horizontal. Oh well, I'm still really happy with it!
