Sewcialites quilt finished!

 I began my Sewcialites quilt in September 2020 and finished it in September 2021.  I was usually able to make one block a week, but sometimes I fell behind a few weeks.  

I used Bonnie and Camille fabrics which I've been saving/hoarding for 10 years, just waiting for the perfect project.  I used Kona white for the background.  I machine quilted it on my Bernina 750QE.  I began in the middle and worked my way out and up and down.  I used a small stipple or jigsaw design on the blocks and sewed a pebble stitch on the white areas.  The quilting is pretty dense or close together.  It took me about 3 days to finish the quilting.  I bound the quilt with leftover fabric from the quilt to give it a scrappy look.

I think my favorite block is the little toy sewing machine designed by my favorite designer, Lori Holt ❤️

Here's a photo of me showing my quilt at my quilt group, 
Farm Girl Chicks.

Here's the label I sewed on the back.
I forgot to tell you about this back fabric!  I won it about 5 years ago, it's a Bonnie and Camille print as well.  I won 6 yards of it, plenty for a backing, and a fat quarter bundle of Bonnie and Camille as well :)

These are the fabrics I pulled from my Bonnie and Camille stash to use  in my quilt.  The green polka dot is Pam Kitty fabric, I really needed some more green!

This quilt goes in the grandchildren pile, although I'll have
a difficult time letting go of it...
You can find the patterns on the Fat Quarter Shop's blog, Jolly Jabber.

  1. Beautiful!! Just seeing some of those Scrumptious fabric pieces and other Bonnie and Camille fabrics in there makes it extra special! I just love this - and would have a hard time giving it away!
