Tiger Lily

Weekends can be a little slow out there in blog-land. So for those of you browsing around I thought I'd give you something fun to look at this weekend.

Sometimes I have an idea for a quilt and as it's coming together I'm just not feeling it. The 'original' quilt that I came up with was just that way. It went through many evolutions that were just "ok" before I finally had that "ah ha!' moment and was inspired to make the finished project:


I am LOVING this quilt right now. In fact, it's my favorite at the moment. From the beautiful 'Fandango' fabrics (thank you Kate Spain for another FABULOUS line), to the simple yet fitting design, to the name 'Tiger Lily' - I just can't get enough. If it weren't up at Pine Needles I'd still have it hanging on my wall.

What do YOU think?

Very cute, the black is unexpected but it works. Is the flower petal hand appliqued, fused??? That adds a punch. Great quilt.
