I wanted to make a pattern for this time of year and I really was itching to make one as an ode to the color wheel.  I always see color wheel inspired quilts and envy them and now I don't have to :)  Here is my newest pattern Dreams Come True (available here in my pattern shop - Tab 2, and in my Etsy and Meylah stores)


Well this quilt is significant for me for a lot of reasons.  I thought I would share a few just for fun.  It might be surprising :) 

1. I grew up in a small town called CLOVER
2. I think I often have LUCK
3. The color Purple was my wedding color, Lavender to be exact, and the color of the CLOVER FLOWER is Lavender/Purple/White.  
4. I believe DREAMS COME TRUE
5. I love making wishes on LADY BUGS
6. There were always a lot of rainbows in CLOVER to spot and some of the most beautiful ones I've seen.  



This quilt is really fun to make and it is a great scrap buster.  The pattern uses piecing, paper piecing, fusible appliqué, and embroidery.  It also offers a table runner layout as well, which is one thing unique about this pattern because you can easily adapt it depending on your space that you have available.


I had a lot of fun quilting this little quilt.  I got to try out all kinds of different background designs.


I got to expand my heart and loop design to include a clover.  It was pretty simple and was a perfect design for this quilt.  I also machine bound the quilt using a bottom line thread.  I bought this thread quite awhile ago and I have recently been using it to bind my quilts.  I really like how it turns out.  I am a big fan of that product!


Just more pictures :)



So, I made this quilt because I wanted a new one to fill the spot of my Valentine's Wall Hanging and now I have this perfect little quilt using all those fun colors bringing Spring into my home.  I feel Lucky!

  3. ALL of your quilts are amazing!!! I hope I have the time and talent to do more quilts soon. I'm slowly working on one. It's a hand applique one and I need to be more dedicated to working on it.
