MY REVIEW

AV2_Lilac_image_pretext

I first fell in love with Joel Dewberry’s Aviary 2 line in Lilac – every time I went into my local quilting store I stood in front of it for a few minutes wishing I had a reason to buy it all. I have come to a place in my quilting life that reason no longer is a factor. Whew.

After Heirloom came out, I decided I loved it even more – so feminine and bright and classic and modern all at the same time, and I just LOVE the colors. Sapphire, Ruby, and Citrine – well named also.

I had the pleasure of working with the Sapphire color way and after I designed a little pattern with Electric Quilt 7 I got to work and just finished up last night.

Excuse my hubby’s silhouette in the background and the slightly washed out colors (better pictures coming soon)…I finished the top and can’t quite make my severely pregnant body move around well enough to get down on the floor and baste it to quilt. Soon…as soon as this baby decides it’s time is up!

I wanted large squares to really showcase the fabric, and I love this general pattern that I’ve seen many times before. I made this one up as I went and I used a flannel sheet on the wall to help me with the design process – can I just say that’s the most brilliant idea ever! Designing a quilt on the wall is SO MUCH EASIER than doing it on the floor…

You can’t really go wrong with these prints though – beautiful colors and prints and they all go so well together. I am very happy with how this one turned out. (The green and pink polka dot is Michael Miller Ta-Dot, love that collection too.)

Also included in this giveaway package are all 5 patterns in Joel Dewberry’s new pattern line. I LOVE that Empire Maxi Dress and am seriously considering getting this pattern for myself and making that dress as soon as my body is back to normal. The matching mother/daughter skirt patterns are too cute also…if only I had daughters! They’re all great patterns and…love the fabric choices!

3 Bethany August 24, 2011 at 9:08 am

I am LOVING that vintage flutter pattern and all the prints are so nice! I would LOVE to add a nice dress or skirt to my nearly non-existent wardrobe- How cool it would be so sew it myself! (Oh, I hope it is pretty easy:))

4 Bethany August 24, 2011 at 9:09 am

P.S. Kelsey, your quilt top looks amazing! I cannot believe you did that while pregnant and miserable!

5 Violeta Murray August 24, 2011 at 9:22 am

I can’t decide which colorway I like better between Ruby and Sapphire. I think which ever one has the most purple would win! The whole Heirloom line is just so pretty!!!
