Flirt

IMG_5644

I’m usually not drawn to girly fabrics…but I JUMPED at the chance to sew with these when I saw them at Quilt Market.

  The line is Flirt by Dear Stella and the colors are perfect.

I love that these fabrics work equally well for a baby or a teenager.  So you can make a baby quilt that they won’t outgrow it in a year!

With that stack up there I made a baby quilt using my Playful pattern.  The different pinks work so well together.

I quilted it with diagonal straight lines, and machine bound it using this method.  After a quick wash and dry it’s ready to deliver to a new baby girl!

Flirt is in stores now.  These photos don’t do this fabric justice!

You can find Flirt at these shops:  Pink Chalk Fabrics and Fat Quarter Shop

I'm not usually drawn to pink but these fabrics are lovely. I need to make my 12 year old daughter a new quilt. I'm at the looking at fabrics stage and I think those pinks might be contenders.
Lovely quilt.

Im not a pink person either but I love a pinkish red; it's a little sweet and a little sassy! The colors are gorgeous and that pattern is perfect for it. Love it!

This is a great design with the pinwheels and bricks. I can imagine it would show off a lot of different collections. Great job!

Just beautiful! Is this fabric out yet and I may just have to buy this pattern! I love it. I need to make a little girl quilt and this pattern and fabric would be perfect!

Love love love.

Your pink playful pattern quilt is adorable. I love that fabric collection. With all boys in my house I usually stay away from pink too, but this is one I must consider!

Tanya Quilts in CO said...

The fabrics are adorable especially because they do not scream baby, but are just feminine and pretty. The quilt pattern is perfect to display these sweet fabrics. Awesome job!

Kim said...

Lovely, definitely a fresh new look for pink and your pattern really pops the colors in a fun way. Thanks for adding a new fabric to my want list. :)

I saw "Flirty" the other day. I had kind of the same thought - I'm not really into girly, romantic fabrics anymore. However, I really liked this fabric line. I've probably just talked myself into buying some:)

Pat said...

This is so pretty. Makes me want to shut off the computer and go make one right now. Ooops! I don't have any Flirt. :-)

Alicia Key said...

Hi, Allison! Love the pattern. As the owner of one of the "local" quilt shops in the country, I'd ask that your last line be "Look for these fabrics at your LOCAL QUILT SHOP -OR- order from ... (the 2 you listed). We All carry your patterns whether we have that particular fabric or not. Keep up the good work!

Carie said...

Oh they are gorgeous pinks - crushed strawberry and raspberry not super sugary pink - definitely irresistible!
