This fabulous Loulouthi fabric line by Anna Maria Horner has been in my stash eversince it was released sometime last year. It has been sitting there for quite awhile until I came across Rachel of Stitched In Color's Loulouthi Tiles pattern recently. I love her great tile layout as it is not only simple but it showcases the lovely large scale prints! I followed her medium sized pattern for this quilt.
I paired the Loulouthi with Kona Cotton in Snow for the top.
I used Triflora in Lipstick, ( love the bright color! ) pieced with vertical scrap strips for the backing. I've used Warm and Natural Cotton batting as I find it suitable with our warm weather.
I handquilted several rows of simple straight lines around each large picture tile block like what Rachel has done on her's and single lines on alternate blocks with Perle Cotton No. 8 using colors that matches the blocks. I bound it with scraps from the front.
I really love how this one turned out. It measures 61" x 73", a generous size throw, and finally something for ME! ;)
Happy Quilting Everyone!
