Flowery Quilt Top.

I made a flowery quilt top this weekend. I bought a Lecien "brick" pack at Hettie's patch a while ago. ("brick" because they are rectangles - that's my name for it anyway!) I really love all those packs that Moda and Lecien have at the moment. Jelly rolls, layer cakes etc, etc. I just love having a little bit of an entire range! I tend to buy them because they are pretty and I don't think much else about it. On Thursday I visited Jane at my favourite patchwork shop (the patchapple) and she had the same Lecien packs which was very helpful because I was able to choose some fabrics to go with my pack. I had an idea of this quilt and managed to find a couple of toning spot fabrics and now the top is finished!

I am crazy for spots and stripes at the moment. Now I just have to find some backing fabric and I can start quilting it. I am thinking of doing some free motion quilting on it. Hopefully it will be pretty!
