I really shouldn't be so excited about this one considering how long it has been coming. I mean I finished the top at least a year ago. It and its aqua twin, sat waiting for me to quilt it until I got fed up waiting for time and gave it to one of the longarmers in the guild to quilt for me. It was money well spent as it only took her a couple of days to do both of them.
I finished up the binding on the aqua one just in time for Christmas (quite literally Christmas Day), but the pink one still needed the binding. Cue a full DVR and a day waiting for some deliveries, and it has finally been finished.
I intended to give the pink one to Olivia, who LOVES pink! But, she saw that I had unicorn fabric in my stash, and some mermaids and
For the back, I just took all my leftover scraps of the line and kind of threw them together log cabin style.
The pattern is "Spanish Tiles" by Heather Peterson of Anka's Treasures. It is in her book, Living Large 2, which focuses on patterns for large-scale prints. I love the idea of this book, and the designs are really brilliant, using sashing in ways I hadn't thought of. BUT, I must admit I wish a little more attention was given to the math for the size options. I made the twin size and had to do some of the border math myself and had quite a bit of waste (which I used on the back, so it wasn't really wasted).
Here is the aqua one too!
I just love the colors. So does Tookie!
