Project Wednesday!

It is Project Wednesday here at The Shabby!  Today we are featuring a customer project.  Marilyn Perry created this colorful quilt for her granddaughter's 11th birthday!  Marilyn used fabrics from the Lakehouse Fun Flowers collection.  Here is what Marilyn had to say about the project:

The design of the quilt was based on a quilt in the 2010 quilt calendar by That Patchwork Place, designed by Cynthia Tomaszewski. I redesigned the hearts so that I could digitize them in my Bernina software for machine applique. I also digitized her initials from Bernina software. The embroidered flowers and butterflies are from Amazing Designs.

The design used Bernina Version 6 software. The sewing was done on a Bernina 830 and 240. The quilting was done on an HQ16 mid arm machine.

I really had fun doing the project and your fabrics worked out perfectly!

Thank you so much for sharing, Marilyn! 

We'd love to see YOUR projects using your purchases from Shabby Fabrics!  Email photos and a brief description to

All submissions will be entered to win one of two gift baskets filled with fabrics, patterns, and more!
