What are Frivols? They’re a series of collectible tins from Moda. Each tin measures 4.5” x 7.5” and includes 42 7” squares, a new Moda quilt pattern, a new block pattern and a Frivol surprise.
This is Frivol #1 and features the Hello Darling collection by Bonnie and Camille. I love their fabrics, and this is a cute pattern. I enlarged it somewhat by using the left over fabric in the tin to make a scrappy border and then bordering the entire thing in white. It ended up being a nice lap size!
I pieced a very simple back with a solid turquoise and white (Bella solids) and quilted it with a meandering, tight stipple design.
The binding is from Bonnie and Camille’s Daysail collection – who doesn’t love a striped binding?
I decided to put the label on the front of this one because it was so pretty – I used some of the special “Handmade” ribbon that came with the Frivol.
This quilt was gifted to my sister, Donna, for Christmas…and so I added three free-hand quilted hearts right next to the label in the border. Can you see them?
Everyone needs a cheerful lap quilt to wrap up in for those cold winter days and nights!
And my sister loves this one! Love to you, Donna!!! xo
