A Quilt for Nina

Mama has a new quilt! I created this delicious quilt using only fabrics by Anna Maria Horner, my very fave designer! I am an avid collector (insane hoarder) of her fabrics and have gathered a fine assortment of flannels, velveteens, voile, home dec, and regular old quilting cottons in shades of plums, golds, pinks and tangerine. 

The random patchwork design on both the front and the back gives this quilt a casual, bohemian vibe, just perfect.

The flannel and velveteen make this quilt extra decadent and oh so warm! The binding is a fabric by Denyse Schmidt which veered from the whole "Anna" theme but the colors were perfect.

Measures 50" x 55" and fits nicely draped across our King bed as a coverlet to crawl under while taking a nice afternoon nap on a rainy day.

Jack thinks I made it just for him, little cutie. A few accent pillows are in the works which will make our bed even harder to get out of in the morning.
