I know a lot of you guys are excited about Kimberly Kight's new Sugar Cone collection and let me tell you: be excited! It's even better in person and it was perfect for the cover of the Annie Quilt Pattern.
For the past year or so I have been playing around with the idea of diagonal stripes behind blocks and this collection was just what I needed to make the pattern happen. I was inspired by the idea of a striped awning at an ice cream and I love that the stripes can be more subtle (like in this quilt) or more bold like in the quilt I will be sharing tomorrow.
My favorite print in the collection is the blue push pop print. I have a hard time finding blue prints that are not green and not navy and the blues in this collection are 👍🏻👍🏻
The quilting was done by my favorite long arm quilter Heidi of Piece and Joy Quilting. I love the panto that she used — it is kind of a cross between a baptist fan and a cloud but also a little like an ice cream scoop 😂
