The pattern is called Nighttime Blossoms, created by my quilty friend, Cynthia Brunz, and published in the Fall 2015 edition of "Easy Quilts." I used the teal, pink, and lime green fabrics from the Good Neighbors collection by Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts from Connecting Threads for the focus fabrics and a gray solid from Connecting Threads for the background fabric. The white on white (the triangles) is from my LQS.
I ended up deciding to quilt my Beautiful Blossoms with edge to edge straight line quilting that went diagonally from corner to corner. As a walking foot quilter, sometimes this simple quilting works the best on bigger quilts, and I really do like the kind of pattern it creates on the quilt.
The backing for this quilt is a pretty gray swirl that came from Hobby Lobby, and I like it so much I decided to use it for the binding as well. But a scrappy quilter has to mix it up a bit, so I added a few pops of color (scraps from the quilt) to my binding!
I'm about half way finished stitching down the binding, and I expect that will be done this afternoon, while football is on TV at my house. Perfect for some Sunday stitching!
I'm looking forward to sticking this in the washer and dryer, and taking some finished photos of it. Then I will be snuggling up under it to read my next Book Club book this coming week. My favorite use of a quilt!
