Heather’s Fancy {a reader feature}

I love getting these emails! Heather forwarded me some photos and a gorgeous story of her recent ‘Fancy‘ quilt make. Fancy was my first published Moda Bake Shop tutorial, and it continues to delight me to see people still making this pattern.

Heather made her quilt as a wedding gift for friends.  They were married in Victoria – on beautiful Vancouver Island, Canada.  It was definitely a “Fancy” wedding, so this quilt is named quite appropriately to remember their special day!


Heather says: All in all, I love how the quilt turned out.  Its the perfect size for a couple of newlyweds to snuggle under (although, here in Canada we are just beginning our summer season.  Not exactly blanket weather.  Soon enough!)

Thanks so much for the gift of “Fancy”.  Its a beautiful pattern!  I’ve attached a couple of pictures.  Pieced by “moi” and quilted by Marie Lingwood of Blueberry Hill Quilts, Chestermere, AB.

Heather used batik fabric for her quilt-top – Tonga Treats in Ebony {Timeless Treasures}. I was never a huge fan of batik fabric until our honeymoon in Bali, and after seeing this monochrome mix I’m liking the idea of a batik quilt more and more! 



Thanks for forwarding me your lovely email and photos Heather – and for allowing me to share them {all photos and quotes used with permission}. I truly appreciate the love that so many of you have shown me over the past year and a bit with my patterns – while I’m not creating them one a week, I have big plans to continue to share them with you, and cherish the feedback I am given. 


I would love to feature your project using a live.love.sew pattern co. design. Just send me an email {using the email link in the sidebar} with details of your finished quilt, a blog link {if any} and photos to be included. I look forward to seeing them all!
