Vignette by Laura Gunn : Fresh Lemons Quilts

A few weeks ago I received a special package in the mail from Laura Gunn ~ Vignette, her latest collection for Michael Miller Fabrics. I’m a huge fan of Laura, from her fabric to her paintings and prints.

Vignette is a collection of beautiful floral artwork. I decided to make drunkards path blocks from my bundle, using the 3-1/2 quarter circle templates I bought awhile back from my friend Jen. So handy!

I selected nine of the prints and kept my background low volume scrappy. I played around a bit with the layout, finally deciding to place my blocks on point.

I quilted straight lines, using my BERNINA walking foot edge as my spacing guide.

The quilt turned out about the size of a wall hanging. I love the neutral background against the floral prints.

For the backing, I went scrappy with the remnants of the fat quarter bundle.

You can find Vignette popping up in shops now. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Spidey Quilt

Spidey Quilt : Fresh Lemons Quilts

Oh, what a weekend. Our house was hit hard with the flu. Happy first day of Spring, right? I was actually hoping to finish this Spiderman quilt on Saturday but that didn’t happen.

Spidey Quilt Fabric : Fresh Lemons Quilts

I jokingly posted this photo of fabric on Instagram and captioned it “the things we do for kids”. I can honestly say I never thought I’d make a quilt with Spiderman fabric but as many people pointed out, these are pretty great designs as far as licensed fabric goes. And I must agree, especially the two on the left. Others commented that their little (or even big!) superhero loving son/daughter/grandson/granddaughter/wife/husband would be thrilled with something made from Spiderman fabric. So a lot of us are in the same boat. :)

These Spiderman prints are by Camelot Fabrics. You can find them at Fat Quarter Shop and Harts Fabric. I tried to pick prints that I could see being combined with modern fabrics from my stash.

I do have the top all sewn together and the minky all set for the back. I’m using the same pattern as my son’s Aye Aye Captain quilt. It’s a great simple layout for showcasing a variety of prints and colors. Fingers crossed I am able to baste it and get quilting today!
