Loved to Pieces Blog Party - Ferry Crossing Quilt

Loved to Pieces Blog Party - Ferry Crossing Quilt

Happy Monday friends! Today is my day to show you the quilt top I created for Mister Domestic's Blog Party to celebrate his new line Loved to Pieces for Art Gallery Fabrics. I was very excited when Mathew asked me to be a part of this special occasion! His debut line! And what a gorgeous one at that.

When I saw the whole line of fabrics, I was instantly drawn to the Anthonem Serene print which is the main star of this quilt - the floral low volume print. I really wanted to create a soothing and calm quilt. I picked a few more prints from his collection and a single solid in Icy Mint to help highlight the colors in the Anthonem print.

I love the variety of scale in all of these prints. A few are small enough to make an impact in some smaller cuts of fabric and some more spaced out prints that almost look like a solid but have a fun hint of color and print.

I decided to make a updated version of my Ferry Crossing quilt pattern in throw size. Instead of having two focal fabrics (Feature Cross and Feature HST) I decided on using the Anthonem as both to give it a really low volume look. I love the way your eye can just easily roll over the quilt and bounce back and forth off of the little hints of solid prints.

I had intended to get this quilted before the bloghop but ya know... summer happened. But I can't wait to get it quilted nonetheless! I did have some fun taking photos of this quilt in my house. Here is a bit of a peak-a-boo series haha. A little sexy I think? Yeah? ....Weird? .....Maybe?

This quilt really wants me to sit by a body of water somewhere and listen to the waves crashing. 

We took the top out on this beautiful tree lined street in SE Portland and I love how the light plays in the trees.

Be sure to check out everyone else's amazing makes to celebrate Loved to Pieces!
