Hello! I just recently finished up one of my own quilts which I'll share today. I call it my Geometric Bliss Quilt, after the fabric line designed by Jeni Baker for Art Gallery. I just loved these prints when I saw them.
I pieced this quilt using the pattern Loaf Cake from the book Sweet Tooth by Daniela Stout. When I asked my husband and son which quilt they liked best from this book, they chose Loaf Cake. Honestly, it wasn't my favorite. I think it looks like a brick wall. But I wanted to feature these fabric prints in a quilt without cutting them up into small pieces, and so I thought I would give this pattern a try. It was very easy, and I do like it a lot!
The backing fabric is a light aqua/mint/blue/green sort of color, flannel. I quilted it on my Innova with white thread and an edge-to-edge pattern called Lotus Blossom. The quilting isn't very noticeable on the front, which I expected because of the bold fabric prints. You can see it on the back, and I like it because it is not too dense and keeps with the modern style of the front. It is also super soft and cuddly.
Working with these prints and colors made me happy! I am currently piecing another quilt with Art Gallery fabrics. Yesterday my husband looked around the room and said, "Purple, everywhere I look I see purple." And that is a good thing, in my opinion! Maybe I'll have it done to show you soon.
I'm linking up over at Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday. I hope you are doing some sewing this winter and getting some quilts finished up, too! Have a great day!
This is me...
I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
