So I decided to take the plunge a few weeks back and participate in a quilt-along... only problem was the quilt along was already finished.. whoops!
I fell in love with this quilt a looooong time ago.
I also had purchased some of the DS fabric when it was first available through an awesome sale at Joann's. I loved the initial picture posted with the quilt along so I knew I would have to use that in my quilt as well.
Here's what I came up with...
Along with the DS for the center blocks, I outlined them in Kona gray and used Kona snow for the white. The back is just something I picked up in my travels. It was a no name, nothing special but because of the blues I had to have it.
guess what.. it matches, perfectly!
The contrast between dark and light picks up all the blue shades on the front
Here's a closeup..
As you can see I just did a simple straight quilting, because i'm still adjusting to this before I jump into the world of free motion quilting (i'm terrified).
Alright, one more picture with my FABULOUS backdrop.. totally had to take advantage when I was there!!
Till next time :)
