Fibs & Fables Clam Bake

 


This Clam Bake pattern (by the talented Emily Herrick) has been on my "to make" list from the very beginning of my quilting journey. 

 

I have always loved the classic design of the clam shells. 

 

Emily's method and shell size was exactly what I was looking for!

 

It was also perfect for highlighting the fabrics in Anna Maria Horner's Fibs and Fables fabric collection. 

 

Of course I had to throw in some Heavy Metal gold fabric (By JACK!E) to give the quilt the bling I love so much!

 

For the quilting, I went with several different quilting motifs. 

 

I find it challenging to fill spaces with the perfect quilting. 

 

I seek inspiration from all over quilting-dom 🤓

 

I am so happy with how this quilt turned out. 

 

Funny story. 

 

When my mom saw this quilt she told me it was a "work of art" and needed to be hung up. 

(Isn't she sweet? ...wait for it)

 

I told her that I had no wall space in my home. 

 

She immediately began to search my home for a wall. 

 

Suddenly she stopped and said, "I know the perfect spot!"

 

"Where?"  I said, assuming she had discovered some previously undiscovered wall. 

 

"In Grandmother's bedroom!" She replied. 

 

I then reminded her, "Grandmother's bedroom is in YOUR house!"

 

My mother smiled and said, "Well, yes..." 😂😂😂

 

Sneaky broad!

 

My sweet angel mother did spring for the perfect backing for me. 😍😍😘😘

I LOVE it!!  Thanks, Mom!

 

Isn't quilting the best hobby EVER?!

 

(How about that Riley Blake gold stripe binding? 😍😍😎)
