A Custom Quilt

A couple of months ago, I was asked to make a custom quilt based on a quilt I made a little while back.  A simple, but beautiful quilt with flannel squares alongside soft colored prints.  After weeks of finding the right prints and putting together this quilt, it is finally ready to show (and already shipped to it's new home).


I love making this quilt - colors like this put together always reminds me of a care-free spring day.


Don't be afraid to mix blues with pinks, greens with oranges, polka dots with checkered and flowers with hounds-tooth.  Together they are all beautiful.


The back is kept simple with one of the prints from the quilt top design and a matching large print flower print - an element of surprise :)


Binding is soft and matches perfectly without distracting from any of the prints.


And the softness from the flannel off-white color is so cuddly and plays well with all the different prints.


I hope this quilt will be loved for many years to come.  Thank you for letting me have this opportunity to remake one of my favorite quilts :)!
