Prim and proper.

Well, friends, we’re finally here! It’s week 7 of the Prim & Proper Sewalong hosted by The Fat Quarter Shop – and I’m ready to share my finished quilt with you! First, let’s take a look at the last six weeks of progress:

This is the Prim & Proper Quilt by Lori Holt. I used Lori’s Prim fabric line in a bit of a different color story from the original. You can see the original quilt and read my kick off post here. All in all this was a great project. The instructions were really clear. I did pin pin pin to get some seams to match, but in the end it all came out quite lovely. Let’s go ahead and get to it!

There she is, in all her pink glory. I love how it came out (and I’m so pleased I redid those stars)! This one finished at a generous 63.5″ x 75.5″. I used one of Lori Holt’s wide back fabrics (also a Prim fabric) for the backing and her large vintage trim in cloud for the sweet binding detail. I’ve been practicing more and more at machine binding and I think I’m starting to get the hang of it.

Can we take a moment for the beautiful quilting? Y’all know I love working with Nicole of Kwilt It! and she really knocked this one out of the park! I just love the major textural impact of the all-over orange peel design.

All in all, I’m really proud of this quilt. I learned so much along the way and had a blast sewing along with so many other makers. Not to mention how much this sweet pot of flowers has definitely brightened up my snowy day.


Happy making!
