She also included a flannel receiving blanket I am going to use as the thin inner border. I think that touch of flannel along with the fussy cut pockets and embellishments with make this a very tactile quilt.
Notes on my process: I bought City Quilts by Cherri House over the weekend. The eye candy and her way with color and form was very inspirational! I liked the book so much I wrote the author a fan email this morning. And she answered!
I also used serious starch on the triangles to stabilize them. The knits in the blocks are stretchy, but as I noted in a previous post, I have foundation pieced them on muslin. The top will be that additional layer thicker, but I didn't have interfacing and and the muslin is more flexible. 4 more blocks to piece, then set the triangles and start on the borders. I received the Garden Trellis fabric today and I am pleased that it is a nice strong pink, without being neon magenta. It will set the whole quilt off very nicely!
