Description

When I saw the Fly a Kite fabric from Riley Blake, I knew that a springtime kite quilt was in order.  Really, it was absolutely necessary :)  So, I got to work!  This quilt was a first of many things for me, including:

writing my own pattern

buying fabric at full retail price (gulp!)

using a large amount of backround fabric that wasn't Kona White

posting a qult for sale instead of gifting it

 

I'm pretty sure my pattern-writing skills have much to improve on, but I am really pleased with how this colorful spring quilt full of flying kites came together.  I am hoping to get this pattern to a point where I can market that too, but in the meantime, I'm just enjoying the process of making quilts!

Cute! The quilting reminds me of puffy clouds behind the kites.

I love the Fly a Kite line. I have plans for a spring-y quilt too. It's perfect for a picnic blanket!

This is such a happy quilt. I hope to see your pattern soon because there's no way I could ever draft one. I can see this in my grandson's room so get cracking!
