Perfectly Perched in plum

Another Monday, another finish!

I made this fun quilt to feature some of Laurie Wisbrun‘s newest line for Robert Kaufman, Perfectly Perched. Those of you who loved Laurie’s Tufted Tweets line will be happy to see more of her wonderful chair designs and more adorable birds.  There are three lovely colorways, but for my first go, I decided to work with these great raspberry and lime prints.

I added in a few additional lime and raspberry colored prints and grabbed a bunch of plum and raspberry colored solids for the background. I talked more about the specific prints, as well as the quilt design in this previous post about this quilt.

The backing is a slightly lighter shade of the background colors along with a strip of the prints from the front. I would usually use a darker solid for the binding, but I decided to go scrappy this time with pieces of the Perfectly Perched prints. Sometimes a scrappy binding is fun, yes?

I quilted it with the same diamond pattern I used on this quilt. I decided to use this design mainly because I wanted to practice the pattern again (oh, and yes, I made note of the requests for a tutorial on this quilting! I will do my best to get something written up for you soon!). Also, a little later this week I have a fun quilting post with Angela Walters where she shares some quilting ideas, including her ideas for quilting a quilt like this one.

Laurie Wisbrun's new Perfectly Perched line is now available! You can find these fun prints at the following shops:

    Hi, I just stumbled across your blog, I think initially through someone’s pin on pinterest. Your work is amazing. I don’t quilt…yet! I’m thinking of taking a course this fall. Anyway, I was just wondering if you sell you quilts. I looked in your shop but I can’t seem to find anything for sale. If you do, can you send me in the right direction? Thanks!
