Summer Romance

This pretty quilt belongs to Dawn.  She made it from a kit called "Summer Romance" from SewBatik.  It is hard to get a sense of the size from the picture above, but it measures in at 102" x 102".  I needed to get up on a ladder to get the whole thing in the picture!

This quilt was made with a specific bed in mind.  Dawn needed a spectacular quilt to go with this spectacular Diamond Willow headboard.  How cool is that?

Dawn felt the "Come Dance with Me" panto completed the vision she had for this quilt.  We decided on a shiny Magnifico thread in a color called "Bay Leaf" and Dream Puff batting for texture and to keep it a little lighter.

 And a few more pictures of all the piecing that went into this quilt!  It is amazing Dawn, thanks for letting me enjoy it for a while!


  1. Beautiful work by both of you! Lovely colors!

  2. I have always been drawn to this quilt pattern and your quilting is the perfect touch.
    Wow, that diamond willow headboard is amazing, the quilt goes great with it.
