Okay, let's get to the real reason I'm posting today. I have a another flimsy finish to share!!!
|approx. 54" x 64"|
This is a fun pattern called Looking Glass by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs. Does that name sound familiar? I blogged a few weeks ago about my finished top for her Midnight Mystery Quilt Along.
(SIDE NOTE: This week Cheryl posted a parade of quilts from the QAL. Go check it out!)
I actually won this pattern in a giveaway back in 2014! It's always been on my to-do list (you know, the long-term one) but I just never found any fabric that I wanted to use in this pattern. Until a few weeks ago that is.
The brand is Creative Cuts which is manufactured by Fabric Editions. I think this is the same manufacturer that provides the fabric for Target and maybe the roll-up fat quarters at Jo-Ann's. I had never used this brand before so I wasn't sure about the quality. But at that price I had to give it a go. Worst case scenario - I could sew it up as a charity quilt. Nope. That's not going to happen. As it turns out, I really love this quilt. Like all the hearty eyes and exploding heart emojis LOVE. Selfish Sarah strikes again. This one is mine. No relatives are going to snatch it. Mine, I tell you!
The fabrics give me a funky urban jungle vibe. Does anyone else get that? Normally I don't go for animal prints but I love that neon green leopard print. And the blue zebra print! Again with the hearty eyes. So, the biggest drawback to these charms was that they were all about 1/8" to 1/4" larger than a standard 5" charm square. I had to trim them all down. Bummer. That added a few extra hours to my total time.
This quilt was actually really fast to put together. I think it took about four days of slow, distracted sewing. If you hustled I think you could make this pattern in one day. Which is pretty cool. Great for beginners and experienced quilters who fun something quick and fun.
Until next time!
