I rarely make a quilt exactly like the pattern but in this case it is pretty close. The pattern is called Summer Harvest by Lori Miller and it appeared on the front cover of a magazine called Quick to Stitch Precuts. The magazine was on the news stand last year and I had hoped it would be a regular publication but I've never seen another issue. Here is a link to Lori Miller's blog and her post on this quilt.
I had the fabric collection From Outside In by Malka Dubrawsky used in the picture in my stash. I went with a taupe Grunge for my background. It is a super simple quilt to put together and I'd like to make it again.
And here is pic of the quilt straight on...
I backed this quilt with minkee which my brother likes a lot ... and the quilting shows up wonderfully, doesn't it?
The quilting was done by Terry Finnerty of The Walking Needle. I forget what this panto is called but I will be using it again ... I washed the quilt and it has great texture.
Last night I went to see A Night with Janis Joplin at the Aronoff Theater in Cincinnati. I went with my brother and niece and the tickets were a gift from them. I enjoyed the show... some parts more than others. The actress who portrays Janis was great ... she really nailed the voice... the cast had some phenomenal voices who sang as the blues legends Bessie Smith, Nina Simone and Aretha Franklin... and the 8 piece band was terrific! The number "Take Another Little Piece of My Heart" was the highlight for me, and the closing "Mercedes" which everyone in the audience sang with Janis was great too. The show had numerous standing ovations throughout the performance ... quite a show.
Well I have some errands to run today and then hopefully some sewing time.
happy stitching -
