Quilt Festival: Summer Soiree

It's another Quilt Festival!

This is my current favorite quilt, which I made for Cynthia at fabricworm. I have gotten so much fabric from Cynthia and she bends over backwards to make sure I always get what I need. This quilt was made with the fabulous fabric line, Summer Soiree, by Paula Prass. (and now she has a new fabric line so I see more of her fabric in my immediate future...) I absolutely love this quilt.This is the fabric I used on the back, from the same line, and since I'm completely in a orange/pink mode right now, it was perfect, as was the fun zebra print for the binding.
So the thing is, I used my own pattern, which I have made many times, and even my friends have made their own versions...

but no matter what fabric you use, it always seems to turn out really cute. But really, Paula's fabric was so fun to work with and that is really what makes this quilt my favorite.

This was incredible. I am clicking around through the Quilt Festival and was wondering where the experienced quilters were in the list. I'm so thrilled to see the newbies, but wanted a balance in this show.

And then. . . yours! I'm adding you to my Google reader--thanks for the beautiful quilt.

First, I love the name of your blog!
Beautiful quilt- I especially love the zebra binding1 It's a great pop with the other colors. My summer was emmersed in orange/pink-I made four quilts in those happy colors!

Love the colours and how you showcased the large print in the border and the quilt itself. I love when the backing has a connection to the front of the quilt. And great to see the other quilts with the same block.

Come see me at

I can see we have similar tastes in colours!
