    Hi all,

    I had my bridal shower a few weeks ago, and I decided to make a quilt as a gift for my aunt, who hosted and planned the event. It was a big hit with everyone (I presented it to her as the first gift at the shower), and I was really happy how it turned out!

    The quilt was made with about 20 fabrics from the "Freshcut" line by Heather Bailey (they were absolutely beautiful, and I highly recommend them!) and white fabric. I used large Freshcut fabric pieces and scraps for the backing.

    I created the pattern for this quilt based on a simple ninepatch concept. The colored fabrics were sewn into nine-patches, and the white fabric was send into nine-patches with smaller colored fabrics on the edges. Each square was about 5 inches. I quilted in a cross-hatch pattern with white thread.

    The final quilt measured about 60 by 90 inches. Hope you like it!
