J Crew Spring 2011

So, this is not what I was going for, but that's ok. (After making this one I know what I need to change to make what I was thinking in my head). I consider it a successful failure. And a really pretty one too.
finished quilt measures 54" x 73"
I used this tutorial as the guide for creating the corners of my squares.
No measuring on my part. Just freely sewing them on.
Then trimming the square to 4.5".
The back and binding fabric are the same.
It's Pink polka dot by Riley Blake.
Most of the solids are Kona purchased at Joann's. I would have preferred to use all solids, but it just wasn't possible with the local selection. So I found what I could to make the gradient.
My favorite detail is the corner of khaki (bottom left). It's metallic and so pretty. Unfortunately, it wasn't really reading in photos. The fabric is Fairy Frost Glitz from the Princess Collection by Michael Miller. Also not as pretty online as it is in real life. Kind of smitten with that little detail though.
