Pinky Soiree is done!

This quilt has been YEARS in the making! One of my first fabric purchases when I started sewing in 2010 was a scrap bundle from someone on Etsy which had a few honey bun scraps of Soiree by Lila Tueller in it and I fell in love. Once I found out what the fabric line was, I purchased a few honeybuns and started in on this quilt. And then it sat... for a year +... waiting for me to quilt it.

Recently I was the super happy winner of a giveaway on Lila Tueller's blog and won another honeybun of Soiree so I was able to make this quilt queen sized which is AWESOME :) The fabric has been out of print for a couple years now and I still can't believe my luck that I won that giveaway!

After I made her bigger I took her to my wonderful local long arm quilter and she did a fantastic job on the quilting - I couldn't be happier!

And finally... after 2 years of waiting, here she is, completely finished and on my bed :) 

Pinky Soiree is finally done!

This is one of my favorite OOP lines - so bright and cheerful! I love the various dots and stripes and leafy prints throughout the whole line. Makes me happy to see it on my bed every day :) I am hoarding a little bit of yardage and a charm pack so I can make some matching pillows when I have time in the future.

As I finally finished her this month, this is also my submission for the "My Precious QAL". Check it out - super fun flikr group and great motivation to STOP the hoarding and START the sewing :)

WTG on finally finishing her :o) I had a bit of precious for this month, but alas, obligatory sewing has prevented me from getting to the bigger picture *sigh*
