Major understatement



To say I love my latest quilt is an understatement.






To say that I merely love it would be like saying that chocolate is kinda good.







Or that my husband likes Mizzou football.







Or that I probably won't make caramel apples for the entire second grade again.







To say that I love this quilt is a major understatement. Sort of like saying it would be cool if they reprinted Flea Market Fancy.






Or that it is kinda weird to have a photoshoot with a quilt.

Pink Lemonade Bags said...

Your quilt turned out amazing! I can see why you are in love with it. If it is weird to have a photoshoot with a quilt, I "get" your weirdness, because I have done it too!! Love the last picture with the pumpkins.

Oh how GORGEOUS!! Things like that really make me wish I could sew two stitches in a straight line!! The colors you chose are terrific with that pattern!!

Rene' said...

No wonder you love this quilt!!!!! The fabrics are totally cool with the wonky blocks!!! Who says it's weird to have a photoshoot with a quilt??!!! Quilts don't complain at the amount of pictures you take...unlike my kids.

Wendy said...

I love it too Dana.
I love the bits of black in it.
I love the "wonki-ness" of it.
I love the white sashing.

It's beautiful.

How big is it?
=-)

tara said...

Fantastic quilt. Photoshoot mandatory.

Rebecca of Sunny Morning Farm said...

I am in incredible lust with your quilt! I mean love!

Beautiful pics too!!

dogwood said...

Oh my gravy!!! That is soooooo fantastic!

Amy said...

I love this quilt too!
It needed a photo shoot.
I so hope they reprint Flea Market Fancy, I wasn't really buying "nice" fabric at that time and I have a few pieces that I was lucky enough to pick up, but I would buy all of it if it was reprinted! Then maybe I could make a cool quilt like yours.
It really turned out beautiful!

sallgood said...

A great quilt deserves a great photo shoot! Wonderful!

Casey said...

it looks fabulous!

Rose said...

That's hilarious, I could just see you telling the quilt "ok, now give me sexy, that's right, ok so now gimme wrinkly-just-from-the-dryer-goodness...fantastic!" lol Love the colors you used, and the wonkiness is great!!

Susan said...

It's a stunner, for sure, Dana!

Caramel apples for a whole, entire class? You nut. :)

craftnosis said...

Definitely beautiful - makes me want flea market fancy even more!
Nicely done!!

Alisa said...

It is certainly beautiful! I love the black accents... it really adds an extra pop!

Goddess in Progress said...

It is just plain awesome! You've totally inspired me to do log cabins for one of my quilting bees. Maybe several of them. ;-)

Liz @ teeny tiny quilts

Tipper said...

I can see why you like it-so pretty : )

Karen said...

Dana that is an understatement! I'm sure whoever sees it would love it, and I bet it looks even better in person. It looks like a great "snuggle up with a good book in front of the fire" quilt! I love your photo shoot too! I still need to take pictures of my first quilt along quilt but haven't done it yet!

Blue Is Bleu said...

So gorgeous!!! Don't blame you for loving it so dearly because it's beautiful! Job well done :)

Juls said...

rofl! No my friend it is NOT weird to so an entire photoshoot of a quilt. It came out beautiful. I am totally jealous becuase I am still working on the ORIGINAL orb quilt along lol. Yes, My poor far far away strips are only half sewn. But your wonky log cabin is the shizz!!

Hi I'm Amy, said...

Amazing! I love how you use the white in the quilt it just makes the colors so vibrant

amylouwho said...

I LOVE it too! I saw it on flickr this morning and had to wipe the drool off the screen! It looks so amazing!

I still only have one block on mine done, this last month kind of slipped away from me. I don't have the same fabrics but I'm going for a similar look. You've motivated me yet again!

amylouwho said...

P.S. you should totally link this up for sew & tell tomorrow!

Trisha said...

Great quilt! I love the colors you went with!

jabeybaby said...

Beautiful quilt! I love all the great photos of it too!

Scrappinfor3 said...

Great job! Was it all machine quilted by you?

Kim B said...

I am just a brand new, barely started, hardly done anything worthy of a mention, beginner quilter and I stumbled on your blog a few days ago. I think this quilt is DIVINITY!

Inspired Tokens said...

Oh Dana, your quilt is gorgeous! It turned out beautifully. I wanted to join in on the quilt group for this one, but I just didn't have time. I do plan to make one soon. For now I'll just drool looking at yours.

Bloggy Mama said...

Totally incredible. DO you sell your quilts somewhere?

Kristine Hanson said...

Marianne said...

Beautiful quilt and amazing photos of beautiful quilt. Congrats on an incredible finish.

wishes, true and kind said...

Regarding photo shoots with quilts:
It doesn't seem weird until you're actually doing it (especially if there are any non-quilters around). Love you FMF wonky log cabin quilt!

corinnea said...

Dana, since it might be hard to tell from the first 46 comments whether anyone liked your quilt... I'd just like you to know that it is really lovely and awesome.

That is so beautiful. You have done that wonderful fabric justice. I feel a little happier in my sadly FMF-free world knowing that the pretty fabric is ending up in such lovely quilts :)

MelissaS said...

Let me repeat some of the others...Quilt photo shoot=Quilt porn! And in my book not a bad thing!

KQuiltyBee said...

This quilt DID turn out great--I have to admit that white sashing is starting to grow on me. Everyone does such a great job with it.
