“Home” Pixie Summer QAL Finish 2017 04-08

I loved making this quilt, despite my love / hate relationship with the very teeny tiny stars for the last couple of blocks.  It all started last summer.  Pixie Summer Home Quilt-A-Long.

Pixie QAL “Home”

The cloud like quilting creates a beautiful look around the houses with just enough depth to stand out from the trees and houses.

Home (Farmhouse Fabric)

The Farmhouse fabric, by Fig Tree (Joanna Febueroa for Moda) was a perfect choice for this quilt.  Colorful, playful and neighborhoody!

See those stars…the smallest is an inch, plus or minus a fraction.   Small = harder to work with than I thought they would be.  I persevered (I even started an ender / leader project now making small stars from leftover triangles from other projects – yes, really I did).

Backing

A blustery windy day (where a cloud rolled behind me just as I started to take pictures) made for a natural look at the back of the quilt.

These red berried trees are a natural fit for the backing.  Kind of like a tree farm in the backyard, if you know what I mean.

Welcome “Home”

The quilt finished at roughly 51 x 63.  I can see this pattern modified as a table runner, wall hanging or even a set of placemats.   I can’t wait to use it again.
