~ Winter Blues Blog Hop ~ Morning Glory ~

Today I'm sharing my Morning Glory quilt for The Winter Blues Blog Hop. This quilt has been in the needs to be quilted pile for about 3 years.  You can see the original post with color inspiration here. The blog hop was the perfect opportunity to finally finish the beauty.  She's a little out of my color and style comfort zones.  But I tell you what.... I 💙LOVE 💙 her.


There was plenty of white space for custom quilted feathers but I felt a simpler quilting design would make her shine in all her glory.  All of the fabrics but one is Kona Solids from Joann's.  The green leaf fabric is quilt shop quality but I can't remember what line of fabric.  Quilted using my favorite thread, MicroQuilter 7002.  I love how this thread blends into every color fabric.  


Keeping it simple was the theme all the way down to the machine binding.  This was a no fuss quilt.  Well except for her large size, 91 x 91!  Just the right size for the spare bedroom bed.  The pattern will be available in a few weeks in my Etsy shop.

  3. Congrats on the finish, I know that was such a relief to get it done. Sometimes the quilts we frown on while they are under construction end up being out favorites. A lovely finish it is.

  7. Oh, that's a fabulous finish! I always like crosshatching, no matter what direction. It does enhance your wonderful design, too. I'm glad it isn't a UFO any more!
