Happy Wednesday...I have an almost-finish to share today (I still need to get the binding finished). I'm
This is my "Go Four It" quilt (pattern designed by Lissa Alexander and found in the April 2015 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting).
There are so many things I love about this quilt...I love that I made it completely from scraps, I love the four patches, and I love the low-volume backgrounds. I love the pattern, the setting, and even the fact that I used two different fabrics for the outer borders.
And...I absolutely love the quilting. I have several go-to quilters, and they are all so fabulous that I generally don't give any directions at all about the quilting. My friend Marion did the quilting on this one and used an all-over pattern, the Curlique Vine by TK Quilting. She got it perfect as always!
I initially wanted to use the Somerset fabric above for the border, but I didn't have enough for the whole quilt. I was set on using only fabrics from my stash for this and so used the polka dots from Avalon for the top and bottom borders.
I think it added to the overall scrappy charm of the quilt!
This photo (above) shows how the blues play out in the quilt. I planned for them to show up in vertical rows and was so happy it turned out. I think there is just the right amount of blue!
I love that I was able to sneak in some Farmhouse pieces right at the end, too... I was doing my market sewing for Joanna right at the time I was getting ready to finish the blocks for this.
Sorry for all of the photos...I just really had a hard time deleting any from this post...and I have to share the back because I love the backing, too!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
