I can tick one more quilt top off my list!
That feels so good!
This Anthropologie- inspired quilt is a baby quilt....so I added a wide top and bottom border of spots....to give it a bit more youthful look....
I love how all the triangles seem to sparkle against the shot cotton....
While I love the texture and rich color of shot cotton, I must confess I found it a stinker to work with. At least with triangles....and the bias edges. May go with Kona the next time :)
This one will be hand quilted.....I am still deciding whether to use perle cotton or wool Aurifil...hmmmm....
Hope you had a wonderful Thursday!
I have to say - I'm a lurker of MANY sewing and quilting blogs but simply had to leave a comment because this quilt took my breath away. Seriously. I am in love with every single aspect of it!ReplyDelete
My fave fave fave Mary ...ReplyDelete
Yes, those shot cottons are a b to work with ...
I used your triangle tute using linen as my solid and that was a b to sew too! Blimey, never had so much bendy bias action! ... but my little row of triangles was lovely ...
Yes, this quilt is magnificent Mary!
Hi Mary! I love your quilt! You have desinged the colours so well, all the fabrics are beautiful and all those tiny triangles just fantastic! x TejeReplyDelete
Mary, this is just the cutest quilt! I agree with the shot cotton--kind of fiddly, huh? That is what I'm finding with the Farmer's Wife blocks. When I was done with each block I gave it a shot of Mary Ellen's Best Press, but that made the shot cottons kind of crinkly. :(ReplyDelete
Anyway, LOVE this quilt--and the fun polka dot border.
This is soooooo beautiful . I adore it. I know that I would never be able to make something as lovely as this, triangles are soooo hard!!ReplyDelete
It looks wonderful with the spotted borders! And I especially love the variation in the shot cotton colours- blue, aqau coral, lime!! Yummy! BTW I used Aurifil wool on a recent hand quilting project and I LOVED it! It cuts through the fabric beautifully!ReplyDelete
I love it - you knew that already though Mary! Is this the one you want to do fans on?? Or do you have another up your sleeve!ReplyDelete
Very yummy! Love the use of the solids to unify the scrappy triangles....looking forward to seeing your quilting progress :)ReplyDelete
Look at all of those perfect points! Going to look for your triangle tute now. So pretty!ReplyDelete
Lovely! I love your various backgrounds in strips, and the red dot with it all.ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness. I. Love. This. Quilt. The different coloured backgrounds are beyond special. Amazing.ReplyDelete
what a grorgeous quilt!!!!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful and an amazing achievement, As you say shot cotton is a pain to work with and frays like crazy.ReplyDelete
Hand quilt? Really? LOLReplyDelete
Glad that you kept it small, more time for new projects.
Anthropologie needs you!!
(do you think if we mention them enough we will get noticed!)
I love the colours in thisReplyDelete
Mary this is one incredible quilt!! The spotty border bits are the cherry on the cake! Im glad you said the shot cotton is a pain to work with, I've found that but just thought it was me. I'm curious about wool aurifl , I'm going to keep my eye out for some, it sounds fun!ReplyDelete
And there's nothing stopping you from using perle And wool!! Variety is the spice of life :)ReplyDelete
Totally gorgeous, love that spotty border. How do you do it?!! You are just so fast!ReplyDelete
wow! I love it. looooove it! I think you have inspired me to make one. And the polka dots, oh, the polka dots...ReplyDelete
This looks amazing. You did a great job and I love it!!ReplyDelete
I love how fun all the colorfull prints play with the solids. Perfect baby quilt.ReplyDelete
