Guest Posting Over @ Cutting Corners!

Eeep!  I can barely contain my excitement!  Just a quick announcement to make sure to that you know I'm guest posting over on the Riley Blake Designs' Cutting Corners blog!  Here is a sneek peak!  :)

Daisy Cottage {Modified} Bento Box Quilt

April 29, 2012

I finally have a finished quilt to share with you all!  Truth be told that my stack of quilts (which are quilted) that need bindings was out of control for a while.  I've had the chance to bind two of the quilts, have one more in queue, and have two quilt tops that need to be quilted- whew!

This beauty is made up of a Daisy Cottage Rollie Pollie, which was given to me by Cindy of Riley Blake (remember when I mentioned that I had the opportunity to go to their corporate office when I was in Utah last October?).  :)  The sashing is Kona Cotton in Ash, which is so versatile and definitely one of my favorites!

For the backing, I used a Sherbert Pips print (Play Dot in Vanilla Ice Cream), with a a reappearance of the Kona Cotton Ash, from the front of the quilt.  For the binding I opted for a Lizzy House 1001 Peeps print (Illusion in Pink).

I decided to quilt the quilt with daisies (hence Daisy Cottage), in yellow.  I really do love the quilting on this quilt, although its a bit more dense than I'm used to.

Before I go, I want to thank my sweet friend Jana her original Daisy Cottage Baby Quilt inspired my finished quilt.  They are very similar, yet they both speak to our own styles and personalities, and I love that!  :)
