Remember my Split 9-patch tutorial? Well here is the finished quilt! The Haven circle gals came through yet again with some great blocks. One person made theirs more teal than blue so it worked out to showcase them in this zig-zag layout.
I added a couple borders to set it off and to make it a little bit bigger in size. I did swirls in the larger border and double bubbles in the gray.
The interior got some all-over swirls.
I just love how it turned out!
I would love to make this pattern again-for keeps!
A peek at the pieced back. I used some leftover yardage from past DGS quilts.
Gotta love a coordinated scrappy quilt! This quilt went to a new charity for us- Bluebonnet Trails Community Services in Round Rock Texas. They recently shared a pic on their Facebook page with this quilt. I just love seeing it in caring and appreciative hands! Gives me the warm fuzzies.
Katie made this really cool quilt with some batik fabrics, some strip piecing and then slicing the blocks.
I quilted an all-over design going off of the leafy feather design in the fabric. Swirls with pointy feathers coming off. I had the perfect variegated thread that went from brown to orange and yellow, so the quilting fades into the quilt in some places and stands out in others.
Joan made this adorable wallhanging. The pattern is from American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine--Aug. 2016 issue and called "Just Rosy". I think it is just awesome! You can see the original version here. Almost identical!
I quilted it similarly to the magazine article, but did a geometric design in the snowball blocks where they did a feather wreath.
I used a coordinated gray thread throughout. I changed to an invisible thread and quilted around the inner circle of the flowers. That way my little wobbles and imperfections would not be as noticeable.
I just love this pattern! Joan let me keep her issue of the magazine, so I just may make one of my own someday. Thanks Joan!
