Dizzy Kitchen

I’ve been dying to share this quilt with all of you, but was asked to keep images off-line until the line is/was released.  Yay – I can finally share!

I was contacted by Blend Fabrics last month, and after a series of emails, fabric landed on my doorstep for a quilt for their booth at Market.

The collection is called Kitchy Kitchen, and I love the bold colors, and graphic prints.  The lemon/lime wedges, kitchen utensils that pop on pink, and all the veggies on navy are so fun!  I enjoyed piecing this one, and look forward to seeing more great prints from Blend.

I used one block, and alternated the colors/fabrics to show off the fabrics, and create the dizzy pattern.  It measures 45″ x 54, and each block finished at 9″.

For the quilting, I took it to Natalia.  We agreed that with all the activity in the fabrics and piecing, an all over quilting would fit it perfectly.  Here’s a better look –

Super cute, and fits the quilt perfectly – thanks Natalia!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoy the Quilt Festival –
