Biscuits & Gravy

You may have noticed already, but in addition to my new patterns using my Farmer's Daughter fabric, I designed a few quilts using BasicGrey's newest line called Biscuits & Gravy. I think you're really going to love them!
This is a Layer Cake quilt and one of the most fun I've ever made. Don't let the curves scare you, I find they are actually very forgiving. I even posted a little video on Instagram (@lellaboutique) showing the basics of sewing with curves!
Dishes quilt
This beautiful cable weave quilting was done by Allison Black at AB Quilting Studio. Not only is she one of my favorite humans, her work speaks for itself.
Dishes quilt
This is a fat quarter quilt, and the finished blocks are quite large (18'' x 18''). I played around with different background colors and had a hard time deciding which I like best!

Allison Black pieced and quilted the navy Trinkets quilt, isn't she a beaut?!
