Hey there, Quiltfolk! Today I'm sharing a quilt made by my client Betty for her young granddaughter, who was personally involved in selecting the Tula Pink True Colors fabrics for her quilt. (This post contains affiliate links).

With a quilt like this one, it's all about those dazzling print fabrics -- the quilting design needs to be secondary and subtle. We chose Karlee Porter's Whirligig quilting design because I felt like Karlee's mod flowers channeled a similar vibe as the Tula Pink fabrics, and I liked the movement of the wavy horizontal lines connecting the quilted flowers and bubbles. Thread is Glide in a pale blue-green called Mint Julep and the batting is Quilters Dream Cotton.

By the way, Woven Radiance was designed by Stacey Day for Free Spirit Fabrics to promote the Tula Pink True Colors fabric collection. The pattern for Woven Radiance is available as a FREE download from the pattern designer here. I love the color placement in this quilt -- it just shimmers!

I really struggled to get photos where you could see the quilting at all. That pale green thread blends so well into all of the fabrics.

Here's what Betty's fabulous quilt top looked like prior to quilting:

Oh, and one more thing -- please join me in wishing my dog Sam a Happy Belated National Dog Day, because apparently this is a thing now and I missed it. I am pretty sure I was supposed to take him out for brunch on Friday, to a place that serves nothing but bacon and cheese.

Actually, I was kidding about the dog restaurant, but did you know they are selling special frozen treats for dogs in grocery stores now? Right next to the ice cream treats for people, I spied THIS in the freezer aisle on a recent grocery run:

my daughter found these frozen treats last year - she spoils her doggy to - but my other daughter says her dog is not getting any treats this week as she ate a sock and ended up at the vet! no treats for that bad doggy.
Lovely quilt - love all those colors and your quilting looks great
Gorgeous quilt, and your quilting is just perfect for it! As for the frozen doggie treats, I'm not letting my dog near this post -- what she doesn't know won't hurt her. ;)
Wow! This quilt is so beautiful!
You've done a beautiful job quilting this for your client. She has a great eye for color and you have a great eye for quilting motifs that enhance the quilt. Wow!
Nice quilt, a little loud for me, but there was a lot of thought and work that went into this quilt! Hugs!
What a beautiful and cheerful quilt! Your quilting is lovely, subtle and yet present. J'adore !
Joyeuse fête aux chiens ;)
Thank you for sharing and linking up!
What a stunning layout on her quilt! Love the quilting you did!!! Happy dog day to Samwise!!!
Wow! What an amazing quilt! I love Tula Pink.
I'm sure Sam will forgive you for forgetting National Dog Day as long as he got one of those frozen treats! Really, in the freezer next to people treats???
