Let's Book It August 2015

The link is up for Let's Book It over at Vrooman's Quilts, I haven't really had my quilting spark lately so following frustrating directions is just what I need, plus I consider this a form of house cleaning since I'm getting rid of magazines, win win. 

This quilt was in Love of Quilting July/August 2006

They offer it as a digital pattern on the web site too.

The description says it's perfect for large prints, which I have a weakness for then wonder what I was thinking when I bought them. Full disclosure I never actually read the instructions only the description before I ran off to grab two large prints I've been trying to use up.

Look how pretty this came out. 

I really love it, the colors are so perfect and it has that tropical look I love. Plus the orange is gone so more house cleaning credits.

And I played with dyes and made the back, which is considered time in the kitchen, win, win, and win!  (David disagrees). 

Summer has seen a slow down over at Let's Book It, think about joining in, you get house cleaning credit. :)

Later Gators,


  1. Yep, this one pops and is so your tropical style! The backing looks like an orange sherbet cream icicle ----they were my favorite to get from the ice cream truck! Good pattern to disguise those big prints. Great photos....but where are the pups? Did you leave them inside this time?

  2. Very tropical looking - not a fan of orange, but this is lovely. I dyed fabrics years ago with 4-H groups - that didn't take me long to get over. Thank you for linking up.

  3. Oh my's gorgeous, Dana. Great job, and your fabrics are perfect. Thanks for pointing me in the direction of the Let's Book It link-up too, because I totally missed it.

  4. Hey! That really did turn out very nicely, Dana. Love those prints together in that quilt design. That may just be a great way to use a large print that's been sitting in my stash forever, too. . . hmmmmm. :) Can't do anything about it until November, anyway, at the earliest.

  5. Pfffft! Of course that is time spent in the kitchen... you used a pot and a big spoon, right? LOL The backing you created is perfect.
    That is a fabulous combination of colors, fabric designs and quilt pattern Dana! A really great way to use large prints for sure! It's so pretty that I pinned it. :)

  6. Oh...that is pretty...great job!!
