Valerie do not look!

I'm sure that Valerie does not check my blog, but if I'm wrong, get out of here Valerie!

Remember this quilt? I told you the strips were the left-overs of another project--this would be that project.

This is a commissioned quilt that will be for my niece Valerie's birthday.
I love it! I really wish my pictures could do it justice.
It's an over sized twin that will fit her bed nicely. It has a pieced strip going across the back that I just love. I tested it out on Gracie's bed, and both sides look great. I love a quilt that is reversible.
It looks so fresh and fun. I love the colors and the combination of fabrics.
My favorite part of the quilting process, is picking what fabrics to put together.

In case you are wondering--it is really a mix of fabrics, but some of them are:
"Fresh-aire" by StudioE, "Nature-ology" by StudioE, "Twiggy" by Sanae for Moda, "Al Fresco" for Marcus Fabrics, "City Girl" for Benartex and who know what else!

I quilted it with white thread in an all-over loops pattern.

I hope Valerie loves it!

Today Tony and I have been married for 14 year
