Double Takes II is the pattern that I would like to feature this week. It’s a chance for me to share my love of charms and layer cakes (I give other fabric options as well). It’s also a chance for me to share pictures of my niece color options of the quilt. I hate stopping at just one option – In fact, if I had more time I would make this pattern up many, many times. The large pieces lend themselves so well to today’s large scale prints, which I have been obsessed with collecting. The original pattern on the cover was made with April Cornell’s line called Portugal.
I did my color option with a some prints from Denyse Schmidt , with a few Amy Butler prints thrown in.
Here’s a close-up of those delicious prints.
The mini quilt in the corner is made with the charm squares. The original one is made with one of Mary Engelbreit’s lines. My color options was made with Za-Za by Erin Michael. I had enough charms in that pack to make a larger project (the fabs were to pretty to waste!)
I used this quilt as a background when I took my niece Addilyn’s 6 month pictures.
Check out those thighs – I think this swimsuite displays them so well.
This shot shows off those beautiful brown eyes and that dimple. We happen to think she is quite precious – but then again we may be slightly biased.
During the photo shoot, she would periodically bend over and loudly suck on her toes. I couldn’t resist getting a shot to remember that. They change so fast and pretty soon she may not be able to reach those toes! Enjoy them while you can, baby!
Now you see why I picked this as the pattern of the week! I got to show off a quilt and a baby. You can’t get much better than that, unless chocolate was involved. If you are interested in winning this pattern – just leave us a comment. I’m interested in hearing about what your current favorite fabric line is. I know it’s hard to pick, but I’ll start things off. I am just loving Garden Party, Pop Garden, and 1974. Oops, that was three favorites. Well, I guess you can tell me about a few favorites if you want!! I’ll post the winner next week. Again, if someone referred you, you can both win 🙂
