my new favourite quilt.

Okay, it is not so new.  I have been sleeping under this for a month or more now.


My favourite Anna Maria Horner Good Folks fabric.  Pieced with love on a weekend away in Atlanta, it will always remind me of that trip and bonding with my quilty friends.


Quilted by the amazing Krista in an all over loop pattern.  The texture is perfect on this monster sized quilt, a large king at 120" by 90".


Buttery voile on the back, so soft on the skin. It is the perfect weight for summer. I love how it welcomes me to bed every night.



My favourite. Now I just need to make me some matching pillowcases and shams :)
