favorite quilt


For those who always read my blog, you'll know that I've posted about this quilt before. But I'm doing it again now for an online quilt festival put together by Park City Girl.


This is my favorite quilt I've ever made. I don't know, but I just really like how it turned out. I love the simple geometric pattern with all the solid colors. Each strip is about 1 inch x 8 inches (finished) and it is twin sized so there was a lot of sewing involved! I also had it quilted (by someone else) with the Denyse Schmidt loops, which turned out great. The backing is orange with the blue quilting thread showing. Love it.

I love the colors. I like how you chose black for the border. It frames the quilt nicely.

Sometimes the things that look simplest are the hardest. Your corners all had to match because ther was no pattern ti hide mistakes.

I dream of creating something geometric and lovely like this. Dream being the operative word here. It's gorgeous.
