The Eye Candy Quilt Pattern is up next for highlight week! I got to take an unexpected trip to my hometown of Dallas. It’s good news for you because I’m extending the pattern SALE through Monday! There’s just no time to unSALE the shop.
This quilt is great beginner friendly pattern! The pattern includes all sizes Baby through King. It highlights large-scale fabrics well.
I made this version with Tula Pink‘s new line Elizabeth! It will hit stores this Spring! It was such a fun line to sew with. Look at those faces! And Tula has the large scale backs that go with the line already available.
I did my own quilting on this one with infinity swirls through the lines of candy in a soft green and shells in aqua on the aqua. It took an entire spool of Aurifil on the background. I actually ran out with about 5×5″ left to go and had to run some thread off my bobbin to finish. I’m pleased with the quilting. It came out just as I envisioned it.
I got a bit out of control on the back of this quilt. I wanted to use every last precious scrap of Tula! I used the selvage to mark the line that I used. The name of the Elizabeth face print is 16th Century Selfie. That is awesome. You can see the quilting so nicely on the back.
And I finally cut my Plume Tailfeather! I still can’t believe it. It makes me so happy that I can see a big piece of this fabric on the back. This is one of my favorites of all time.
I also made a Christmas version of Eye Candy! I used Kate Spain‘s Joy! I’m going to finish it for next year.
