1946 Quilt in Flea Market Fancy


1946
I bought this as a kit from Patchwork On Central Park and I just couldn't wait to begin to make this quilt. The pattern is made by Melly & Me - my all time favorite designers. I've been a fan of Rosalie Quinlan for years and when I bought my first Melly & Me pattern I had no idea that she was behind this label!

I couldn't believe my luck to find this kit - in one of the all time most gorgeous fabric ranges - Flea Market Fancy. I so wish this range could be re-released. Please Please, can somebody please do it - I know it would be another total world wide sell-out, even in a middle of an economic downturn...
Getting back to this quilt, it was fun and easy to make, lots of cutting though, I think it was about 400 squares cut into halves! I was cutting for 2 whole days, but it was so worth it! I'm really pleased with how it turned out and it's so far my favorite quilt to date. I backed it with Anna Maria Horner's fabric from her Chocolate Lollipop range. The colors are just perfect together, I forget at times they are not from the same range or designer!
