A Meander Olivia Quilt
Lately I have been wanting to go back and make some older patterns. Does anyone know how to add more hours in the day so I can have time to do this? The Olivia Quilt Pattern is one of my favorites and I haven't made it in ages so Aneela Hoey's super cute Meander collection was the perfect excuse.
I have been a fan of Aneela's fabrics for a long, long time. Sherbet Pips and Posy were some of my favorites when they came out so I am so glad to see that she is designing fabric again.
The Olivia Quilt Pattern is charm square friendly, so I picked up a couple of charm packs and some yardage of a couple of the prints to use in my quilt.
I don't particularly have an attachment to horses, but we fostered a 4 year old girl a couple of years ago for several months who LOVED horses and now they remind me of her. That made this project extra sweet.
For the backing fabric, I had to get some of the horse print. I couldn't help myself! This light blue is one of my favorite colors (and a rare color to find in quilting cotton).
The binding is a darker blue dot print — another favorite color. There are so many really pretty oranges and blues in this collection and lots of versatile, basic-type prints that would be good for stash building.
You can find Meander pretty widely available and you can pick up a copy of the Olivia Quilt in my shop!
