Today's guest is Kayli from Quilt Finishing. She is here to share with you all the quilts she blissfully made. You will love her quilting work, it's just beautiful.
I'm a big fan of Bonnie and Camille, they are a mother-daughter team that is very talented and I love their designs and style! They each have their own pattern companies and they join together to design fabric to die for. I have loved red an turquoise together since I was about 12 years old and I can't get enough of it. The red in the Bliss line that Bonnie and Camille designed is so bold and perfect. I like that the turquoise is soft and fits so well with the red. This line also included green, pink, browns, and white which all go perfect together to create "bliss" for quilters like me. Now I know where they got the name!
When the Bliss line first came out I bought a charm pack and couldn't decide what to do with it for a while but then I saw this tutorial last year and I wanted to make it with just one charm pack and do a little table topper.
It was super fast to put together, I had a few left over charms so I put together a super scrappy border that went just perfect.
I couldn't stop there, I had to have more! I bought a jelly roll and some yardage and did the Picnic Rollup quilt from Thimble Blossoms (Camille). This quilt was so fun because I could pick what colors would be together in each block.
It is really hard to choose a favorite, but I think this block was my favorite:
Look at all those lovely colors together!
It was really fun to quilt too, I quilted this myself and it was the first time I ever did feathers. I wish that I would have done them bigger, but I hadn't learned how to do them really good yet. I'm really happy with the quilting that I did on this and I love it.
Bliss fabric was designed in flannels as well, I got flannel yardage to back this, it is so soft and comfy! And this is probably my favorite print from the line so why not have 4 yards of it!?!
When Quilt Market was in Salt Lake City in the spring, I was lucky enough to go with some of my Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild friends. We definitely had to meet Bonnie and Camille! They are so sweet and so beautiful in person and I am so inspired by Camille especially because she is young and has really young children like me and has her own business and is such an artist!

I love the new Ruby line too but I haven't gotten anything made with it yet.
I hope to get some soon!
I am so jealous of all that Bliss that Kayli got to work with. Which project do you like the best?
Come back tomorrow to see what Ryan Walsh has to show us, I know it will be fabulous!
