I started this quilt way back in February of 2011 when a friend of mine on etsy sent me the link for Amy Butler’s Bloom Pattern. As soon as I saw it I knew that I had to make this! It was one of my ‘nesting’ quilts that I made during the end of my pregnancy with my last little girl, Persimoni Mae. You’ll see that I tweaked my quilt just a pit from Amy’s pattern but I think it’s still pretty amazing!
**PS this is quilt 21 for voting purposes…
I’ve actually had the 300+ yoyo’s (303 actually…I found 3 more and just sewed them on last night) sewn on to the top for a bit now but it took me until last night to finally get up the energy to trim all the threads sticking out of the blooms. It feels so good to have this one under my belt though!
I just love all the color, all the texture and all the dimension this quilt has. Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! I named it Blooming Poppy Yo-Yo’s.
I don’t think it’s big enough for a bed but it does fit nicely on our futon.
Since this quilt has taken so long to make I thought I’d make a quick little mosaic of it’s progress from start to finish. Feel free to browse through the all the photo’s I posted to flickr during my progress.
