I made the 'Orange Quilt' (free pattern over at Cluck Cluck Sew)! I did modify the design by simply cutting squares of fabric in lavender instead of putting a printed fabric square in the middle - it saved a little time and cost on the fabric. This is a twin size and my largest completed quilt to date. I used Denyse Schmidt's Hope Valley fabric and pieced the back together using large pieces.
I got to use my NEW walking foot for the first time and I am in love with straight stitched quilting now (is that what it's called)? I found that trying to use the guide on the walking foot was frustrating me so I got out my ruler and drew the lines on myself with a wash out fabric pen. I was then able to zip the quilt through with ease. The hand sewn binding was sewn for the entire duration of Downton Abbey Season 2 - 9 hours I think!
This quilt is for my darling Jolie and I hope she will take it with her to college someday (or New York when she's a famous ballerina)!!! Here is a picture of her (right) after her recent recital:
