Lunch Box Social

I've always loved Kim Diehl's designs and fabric coordination choices.  She's so great at that rich, scrappy, traditional look.  I think just about every quilt from her book Simple Appeal has been on my bucket list since I purchased it, so when I was offered the opportunity to make something up with the new Little House on the Prairie line of fabrics by Andover, I immediately thought they would be perfect for a Kim Diehl quilt!

Yep, perfect fabrics!  Bright colors mixed with muted muddy fabrics equals country traditional!
Quilted with a cotton thread following a panto called "Fancy," a design with a daisy and rooster motif.  Fun!  Ha!

Disclosure: I received supplies to make this project from Jackman's Fabrics in Fairview Heights, IL.  The quilt will be hung as a shop sample in their store to promote sale of both the pattern and fabric lines.  In exchange, the quilt will be returned to me and becomes my property at the end of the promotion.  They did not require me to write a positive review of any of the products.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 <> : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
