This makes Wonderland quilt #3 (#1, my second-ever quilt, and #2). I am still hoarding quite a bit more fabric from this collection so I bet Wonderland quilts will be showing up around my house for years to come. Need I say that this is one of my favorite fabric collections? What’s not to love? Look at all that color.
I actually already have a fourth Wonderland quilt planned using some of the orphans from this one. It’s going to be petite so maybe I can whip it up quickly and show you. I’m very excited about it.
I used a cool Anna Griffin print on the back of this quilt. My photo is very shadowy so it’s a bit hard to see but the detail image below shows it quite well. I bought it on a mega discount at fabric.com. It was something like $2.50 or $3 a yard. You really can’t beat that for backing.
Dimensions: 52.5″ x 64″
Fabrics: Wonderland by Momo, solids from Bella Solids by Moda, Flora by Anna Griffin for backing
Started: March 2010
Completed: January 2011
This is actually my second finish of 2011, but I have yet to blog about the first. You can see it here, if you’re interested.
Tomorrow I am teaching a modern quilting class at Make (a cool DIY boutique here in Dallas). I’m really excited to see what fabrics the students bring for their mini quilt. Introducing quilting to newbies is so much fun! If you’re in the DFW area and want to take a class, check out the schedule here. Later this year we’re going to be adding some more advanced classes for those that already quilt. I’ll share details when I know more.
