My mother is a bit of a traditionalist and loves the colors of china blue and rose/raspberry. This quilt used a Jelly roll and a Charm pack of LeBouquet Francais by French General for Moda, plus Bella bleached white PFD for the solid squares. We mostly followed the pattern for Sweet Sixteen in the book Antique to Heirloom Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott…but added a scrappy border to increase the size slightly.
We used a lightweight Tuscany 100% batting and I free motion quilted it with loops, spirals and stippling. We decided to keep the quilting tight because of all the negative space…so this is a really wrinkly quilt but is quite soft and drapey due to the batting used.
