Honeymoon Quilt Tutorial

I feel like I have been waiting forever to share this one so I am thrilled that the day has come!  I created this 52″ x 60″ lap quilt for BasicGrey using their Little Black Dress fabric line.  You can find Little Black Dress now at the Fat Quarter Shop.  The dots only are available at Sew Me A Song.
I’m not sure if I have mentioned it here before but one of my personal goals at the moment is to improve my free motion quilting skills.  Thanks to Angela Walter’s awesome book, I am feeling more brave and determined. I used two of her quilting patterns in the center of this quilt, the square flower and the variation of sunrays and pebbles.  The rest of the quilt is done using Elizabeth Hartman’s Orange Peel design. 

Full tutorial and more pictures can be found on the BasicGrey blog today.
