Plain Jane

Is Plain Jane from Smash Your Precut Stash (affiliate link) adorable or what?

Just loving the pink plaid with Kona Baby Pink and Kona Tarragon. 

Wait! OMG! I've used solids! Don't worry - I'm not tossing my print stash. Sometimes solids are just what a design needs. And this one is a perfect use for them. For a bit more on how this was put together, see yesterday's post, Plain Jane Updates.

Here's the quilt laid flat (the grass makes the edges ripple).

 And here are the gorgeous quilting pictures, in pink,

and in green.

And certainly can't forget that pretty pink plaid.

As for my quilting choice, I had wanted to do a freehand design, but any that I auditioned just didn't look right. Opting for a simple feather and swirl pantograph provides the consistency that I was looking for. And the beautiful stitches made by my Innova machine with Glide Cotton Candy pink thread - gorgeous! How I love that machine!

I hope you get a chance to check out the Smash Your Precut Stash book (affiliate link). There are a couple others I'd love to make, but I really need to finish up some others first (t-shirt quilts, cough, cough!). Have a great weekend quilting!
