Heading South quilt and Fairy Edith Blog Tour

It’s my turn to share a project on the Fairy Edith blog tour! I have been dreaming of this quilt for about a year and a half, and today I was finally able to piece the top together :)

Heading South has been one of my most popular quilt patterns over the years. As a result, I have been able to see this pattern made using a lot of different colorways. After I completed my Fairy Edith fabric collection, I just knew I needed to make one with the blue and silver fairy dust print.

I think the dark blue really makes the coral, aqua, green and gray geese pop.

The metallic silver fairies and stars are just the icing on the cake :)

If you know me well, you know that these are absolutely my colors! I think they are so dreamy.

If you’d like to see some other beautiful creations made with Fairy Edith, check out the rest of the blog tour. I am so thankful to my friends for joining in on the Fairy Edith fun :) The below makers are some of my favorites and always inspire me with their creations.
