Third Finish - Loulouthi Tile Quilt

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!
