Progress...

I finished my quilt top for Rachel's Colorbrick Quilt-Along.IMG_2160
This is shaping up to be my new favorite quilt.

I pulled all of these fabrics out of my stash. There's lots of Meadowsweet in there, as well as some Amy Butler Full Moon Dots, Anna Maria Horner Chocolate Lollipop, Katie Jump Rope, Del Hi by Valori Wells...and probably a few I'm forgetting.

This color combination looks like fall to me! I have a plan for the back, but I think I'm going to need to buy a little more of the Kona Bone I used for the "grout" (or would that be mortar?) to finish it.

"Looks like fall" was my first thought too. Looks awesome!

Manda said...

Love this its "fallish" without being dark! :)

Carolyn said...

Oooh, I love the color combination and the simplicity of it. So beautiful!

Leah said...

Fall was the first thing I thought of too. What a cozy color combination! Do you have any scraps left over to make a couple of tree pillows? Those would be great colors for leaves.

I guess it would depend on the type of tile it is and what it will be used for; floor or wall.

The quilt looks amazing! Definitely a fall quilt.

Love it. It's perfect for fall. I love that the fabrics are really the stars in this quilt.

I love this one even more than the quilt festival zig zag quilt. The fabrics blend together so nicely. I bookmarked the quilt along link, and this pattern will be on my to-do list.

This one is perfect for fall. But I think I'm seeing a pattern here: Every quilt you work on is your new favorite!

What a great way of avoiding a mismatch of sashing. I'm having the hardest time with that!

Looks very nice!
