that song played through my mind when sewing with this fabric from Michael Miller (We are Siamese in Cream). I bought it with no particular quilt in mind, and out it came this weekend when I decided to just pull some of my stash and sew WITHOUT a plan. Though, the real starting point was the Denyse Schmidt Flea Market Fancy Bouquet (Red) fabric, which I love, love, love. I want more of both, so not really sure if I did much to lighten my fabric load.
also used Kona Coal, Sherbet Pips by Aneela Hoey for Moda, a matching red (not really sure which/when/where that one came from), a pink and white polka dot from VIP by Cranston Print Works, and a Tiny Gingham from Michael Miller.
this quilt was inspired by Hop, Skip & A Jump from Denyse Schmidt’s book - Denyse Schmidt Quilts, an oldie but a goodie. Mine’s a little less wonky, and not two-toned, but I think you can see how one might’ve come from the other. I can see me doing something much closer to the inspiration quilt someday. It seems like a very versatile quilt. and I LOVE red and white together.
I wanted this book for the Drunk Love pattern – I’m thinking of doing something similar with my Tula Pink Nightshade fabric. had one heck of a time tracking down a copy since the book is out of print now. I could’ve bought it from Amazon (I believe it’s still available there) but I like to page through quilt books before buying. I ended up finding it at The Needle Shop (LQS in Chicago) – and found more inspiration in it then I thought I would. Yay! :-)
