Nostalgia Layer Cake Quilt (#52)

Nostalgia layer cake minky quilt aurifil 50wt.
Nostalgia by Jennifer Paganelli came out last year and it is even prettier 'in person' than on a computer screen.  Buying fabric on-line can be a gamble but this collection does not disappoint.

No matter how many times I have used the Easy Bake  pattern from Allison over at Cluck Cluck Sew, I am always pleased with the random yet structured final result.  I didn't follow her pattern to the letter for this quilt - but her general instructions give me guidance every time.

Beautiful French Lilac Variegated Aurifil 50wt. thread in a wavy line over the seams, vanilla minky on the back & Kona Grape Mist binding ... well, this makes for a really nice lap blanket.

I only know how to do simple quilting and not intricate free motion designs so I appreciate fabrics like Nostalgia whose stunning patterns & delicate colors make a simple quilt become a star.
