Sundae's Best

I was recently asked to sew a shop sample for a local sewing store. The owner had a specific quilt in mind - and a specific fabric line. She wanted me to make a quilt designed by Scott Hansen that she had seen at market. The pattern can be found here. Scott made his quilt using Nicey Jane fabric, designed by Heather Bailey. The store owner wanted me to use the Amy Butler fabric she was carrying in the store.

Yes - all those half-round pieces are only attached along the straight edge. This made it quite the bugger to quilt - but I managed to get it done without sewing over my own fingers! I love how the top stitching along the outside round of "petals" makes them really stand up. If I were to ever make this quilt again, I would top stitch around the inside "petals" too.

Thanks, Scott, for a great pattern!
