This week I finished the top for my "Life is a Highway" quilt from the pattern by Cynthia Brunz, made out of my Seaglass Bali Pops. And I am so pleased with it!
As I was finishing up the last few rows, I was trying to come up with some words to describe what I love about this quilt top, pattern, and fabric combination, and "sweet" comes to mind. The colors are very sweet, and the simple pattern lets them be the focus. I chose Kona Navy for the small squares and I love the contrast it gives to the more pastel batik fabrics. I'm going to enjoy snuggling up with a good book under this quilt when the snowflakes start flying.
Since the quilt top is very calm and straight forward, I decided to go with whimsical for the backing. I love those little birds! The binding will be the Kona Navy.
On to basting and quilting!
