Besame mucho means Kiss Me A Lot. And lots of kissing is what I feel like doing now that this adorable quilt is finished!
Pattern is Kiss Me by Fig Tree Quilts, fabric is Strawberry Fields, also by Fig Tree for Moda. Joanna Figueroa is the designer. Aside from some tricky cutting (made easier if you use the proper ruler), and needing to change up the method for making the flying geese units, this was a wonderful pattern. Everything went together like a dream.
Love these summery fabrics, and cheerful colors. The only thing I would change is the use of the polka dot fabric in the inner border. I think I'd like the overall look better if I had just used the cream background I used in the blocks. I do enjoy a fancy border on my quilts, and the flying geese add just the right touch. To make the geese units, I used Monique Dillard's Fit To Be Geese ruler, which calls for making the units a scosh larger and trimming them down to the perfect size. Let me tell you, that flying geese border fit *perfectly* with no need for any fiddling or faddling. Thank you Monique for a brilliant tool.
Has anyone else made this quilt? If so, send me a photo and I would love to share a picture of it on my blog.
Also, be sure to come by tomorrow, as I will be talking about our Spools Sew Along.
