The top is 49" x 72-1/2" but will shrink slightly once it's quilted.
The quilt consists of exactly ONE block, so it's incredibly easy to construct. The pattern calls for 5 different fabrics and once the blocks are constructed, you twist and turn the blocks to produce a very lively layout. My fussy cut layout is much more structured. :-)
I fussy cut teacup fabric ("Delectable Collectables" by Holly Holderman for Lake House Dry Goods.com) and a fancy dessert fabric (no identification information on the selvage).
Originally, I had purchased online a vastly different border stripe fabric in pink & gray to use. But when it arrived, I saw that the pink was actually more peach in tone and it unfavorably contrasted with the bubble gum pin of the quilt. I was disappointed because this border stripe looked SO wonderful online ... but that's the problem with buying online .. you don't get the true colors.
Fortunately, I had another floral border stripe in my stash, one that DD #3 (who now prefers to be known as "pirate cupcake"!) liked much better. How fortunate, as this quilt is going to her. :-)
Yes, yes ... clever eyes will ascertain that I did not match the florals in the miter. It's good enough for me that the STRIPES match ... I don't care to be crazy OCD about everything. :-)
Truth be told, I actually did prefer the other border stripe fabric ... it was a simpler design. I think I suited the busy piecework better. This floral border stripe is a tad too busy for my taste, but since DD#3 likes it better,that's all that matters.
Alas, DD#3 will need to wait for this to be quilted, as there is a messload of other quilts ahead of it. :-)
