The part I love the most about this quilt is the quilting. Stitched in Color has a wonderful tutorial for the Dogwood quilting pattern, she also includes encouraging words for beginners. Like not to worry about how your quilting looks, each new flower is an opportunity to do better. I certainly kept that mantra in mind as I made my way across the quilt. My flowers are nowhere near perfect but I love the softness that all those curves give to the quilt.
My daughter’s Penny Patch quilt is finished. Actually it was finished a few months back, I’m just now getting around to blogging about it. Luckily I took some photos back when it was finished so you can see how it looked before it was dragged around for a few months.
I made this quilt as part of the Penny Patch Quilt Along with Rachel at Stitched in Color. I started with a bundle of Out to Sea fabrics by Sarah Jane and added additional fabrics from my stash to give it more of a scrappy look. There are prints from Erin McMorris (La Dee Da), Aneela Hoey, Heather Ross, Lizzy House, Lu Summers and others.
