The April Culcita Box
fabrics were so much fun to sew with. I struggled a little with what I wanted to make with them and ended up making two different quilts (I am hand quilting the second one, it won't be done for a bit). But I do have the first one to share with you today.
Forgive the upside down quilt. I wanted a pattern that would show off the fabrics and not cut them to tiny pieces. I also really wanted to make a baby quilt with them because they are so bright and happy.
In order to make the Betty Quilt
pattern FQ friendly, I made my blocks slightly smaller. It worked out perfectly and just made the quilt slightly smaller.
Since the collection is so colorful, I knew that I didn't want to use white or gray as the background color. I took a small risk and with Kona Ice Frappe. It's not crazy colorful, but I like how it works with the fabrics in the collection.
Once the quilt was quilted and ready to be bound, I ditched my plan to use dark gray as the binding and took another risk. This is Kona Chartreuse.
There were a couple prints in my stash that probably would have worked for the backing, but I didn't think they did Tabby Road justice so I picked up this Disco Kitty print from Lark Cottons
. If you have never ordered from this shop, the owner (Heather) cuts the fabrics nicely on-grain with a pinked edge. I always appreciate the care she puts into my orders.
