On Friday night, I had a dream. I dreamed I made a lovely, summery, cute little quilt. I spent all day Saturday making this quilt- and it turned out *exactly* like the one in my dream!

Incidentally, the one in my dream was being used by my daughter. Which is interesting, because I don't have a daughter... :)
Here it is, in full!

I outlined the flowers in black- that's the way they are in the print I used.

The Michael Miller print the colors are based on...

The 4-patch on point border- I love this border :)

And finally, the super fast method for getting all those flowers!! I put fusible web on the back of the fabric, ran the fabric through my Sizzix Big Shot with the flower die, and voila! Instant applique pieces!

So, there is the quilt from my dreams... now, to go talk to someone about the daughter who was using it... :)


  1. So cute! I love the flowers. I wish I had a dye cut to make it all so easy!

  2. Hey, the Sizzix idea is brilliant! I have a Cricut, I wonder if it will work. Must try it this week.
    Lovely quilt! Very fresh and summery.

  3. So these are the colors I should be hoarding to make baby things for you some day?

  4. That's terrific. A dream and a quilt. I wonder what it all means? Ann :)

  5. Totally freaking adorable! You'll have to show me how to use that setting ruler one of these days. I'm fairly certain I have one in the ruler stash.
