This year for Christmas my mom, aunt, and mother-in-law all pitched in and got me several half-yards of the new Anna Maria Horner Voile (little folks). I had been dreaming of those voile's since I'd first seen them online. I sat with it in my sewing room for about a month, just admiring it before I finally got the guts to cut into it. This is the first project I used my rotary cutter for, the first project I used real, designer fabrics, and the first project that I did the free-motion quilting on. I'm really in love with this quilt, it's soft, warm, and cuddly. I learned so much about proper fabric cutting and rotary cutting on this. I actually used high quality thread and border fabric... it was really nerve-racking to finally do the free-motion quilting... which in retrospect was not that hard, but I need to work on my style a bit before the next quilt. I did end up playing it a bit safe with the layout of this quilt, letting those beautiful fabrics speak for themselves!
The fabrics used were AMH Little Folks, AMH Good folks (binding), and Kona Coal for the border and back.
