Gelati!

My friend Elizabeth sent me this fun fabric earlier in 

the year...


and I have finally cut into it!

I used mostly the "5th and Fun" range 

by Sandy Gervais,


with some Windham "Party Animals" thrown in for 

extra fun!


(To be honest, I couldn't find any yardage of the

 other fabric and this one seemed to fit the bill!)


I've paired the prints with some soft solid fabrics I 

have been hoarding....

Mini charms (2.5") bordered by 1.5" strips

and this reminds me of Gelati, so that's what I'm 

calling it!



Each square finishes at 4", so it's not a large quilt

at 32" x 36",

but it's mighty pretty!



 I backed it with Lizzy House Mini Pearl Bracelets,

in Peach,

and quilted it simply with a double-line grid.



And for a quick finish, I machined down the binding!

Thanks to a long weekend here in Melbourne,

this quilt took me three days, start to finish!

Linking up with Sew, Stitch and Share....

Happy sewing!

  2. I love the colors in this quilt; it's modern but soft. I have a stash of Sandy Gervais baby fabrics from the 20th century which would look great with your pattern. Thanks for the inspiration as always.
