I finished this quilt up the other day:
And even had sunlight for taking some pictures. Maybe this photo's a little too bright but I like it anyway. We waited so long for sunny days this winter.
A few notes:
*I used Basic Grey's Curio fabric collection for the blocks and a JoAnn's quilter's only solid for the background. I am disappointed because the quality of the quilter's only solid has really gone down since I last bought some, probably a couple years ago. It has a much looser weave and lower thread count, and I won't be using it again.
*Pieced and quilted with thread from Connecting Threads; I have been really happy with their thread. I used the Essential Pro thread and will be ordering more soon. (Also they have some really cool circuit board fabric that I'm going to use to make a Kindle cover for my son.)
*Blocks are 18". The finished quilt is around 62" x 68".
*I quilted it by stippling in the background areas and doing some swoopy outline quilting around the edges of the block pieces. Here's a closer picture of the quilting:
I'm happy to be done with it and excited to be working on my next project. :)
