The pattern is Rachel's Penny Patch pattern which is so quick and easy and sweet and would be great for a beginner and still a satisfying project for a non-beginner.
Since these colors are a little out of my comfort zone I was afraid that I wouldn't have much to coordinate, but thank goodness for Pearl Bracelets and Kona cotton. But working with unfamiliar colors was hard!
The Palos Verde print is voile and this is this the first time I have used voile in a quilt with regular quilting cottons, but I didn't have any problems and it is nice and soft.
I almost splurged on another Palos Verde print for the back, but then I found this Hello Pilgrim print in my
hoard stash. The binding is the gorgeous Lecien color basic stripes which I don't think is made anymore, but if anyone knows where I can find more of this let me know! I am almost out.
This one will go to its new home at a baby shower later this week. It has been so fun to make new friends here in San Diego and be able to share quilts with them.
Fabrics used in this quilt that are still readily available:
Pearl Bracelet in Juniper, here
Kona Cotton (I am not 100% positive, but I think this was Primrose and Camellia)
Michael Miller Cotton Couture in Stone
Le Creme Swiss Dots, here
