Fancy Free

This single bed quilt was first patched in 2015 and I found time to quilt it just before Christmas. It is one of my 2017 Finish Along First Quarter goals.

The fabric is a layer cake of Riley Blake Designs' 'Fancy Free' and I used a pattern by Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts called 'Kyss Me By The Garden Wall'.

I used a large all over stipple to quilt it.  Of all the fabrics, I love the bicycle design the most...

The quilt measures 60" x 74" and the backing is made with more of the multi-print that I used for the long strips on the front, as well as a panel of  'Passion Flower' by Bella Roo Designs for Fabric Editions (that I pulled from my stash). I used an aqua gingham for the binding.

And I am sharing this at Lorna's very own "Let's Bee Social" quilt party link-up! Hi everyone! And also linking up with Amanda Jean's Finish It Up Friday party.


  1. You chose the perfect layer cake to use in this design, Jen! I love the soft girly girl colours. Your quilting looks fantastic and that blue gingham binding is such a sweet finishing touch!

    1. Cheers for that Lorna! I am glad you approve; thanks for the great pattern, so easy to make!

  2. How pretty! The fabrics are so light and fresh, and that pattern really shows off the fun prints. Great finish!

  3. I always find it funny that I see links to your blog on american sites and yet we are both NZ'ers. Love the two quilts you have finished.

  4. Beautiful. So springy!

  5. What a beautiful wall! It looks fantastic and I'm with you on the bicycle print, it's so sweet!

  6. I just bought a Riley Blake jelly roll - such saturated colors!
