AB Quilt Top Complete

This week I got all the blocks up on the design wall and had fun rearranging them until I liked the balance of colors and value.  I always enjoy having one on the wall like this and moving blocks around as I go by.

You can see my high tech design wall.  High tech felt adhered to the wall with high tech push pins. But it totally works and the cost was truly minimal.

A little sewing time today to get the top together and then I headed outside to get a pic in natural light.  So far so good with this quilt.  Planning to use an old sheet (in soft blues and greens) for the back and that Michael Miller print (second row, third from the left) for the binding.

 And yes, I did get more mosquito bites getting this shot.  Apparently I need high tech mosquito repellent!
Hope you have a happy week - Fall is on the way!

  1. This quilt is lovely, so fresh feeling. It's beautiful.

  2. What a coincidence!! We have the exact same design wall. :-)

    The quilt is great - really happy colors!

  3. What a great quilt to showcase those large scale prints! I can't wait to see a picture of the binding... I'm a sucker for a good binding!

  4. Your quilt is really great. I love how the white sashing really makes the prints pop. Love it!!

  5. This has come out really well - you've got the colour balance just right. I'm glad you braved the mosquitos again to get a photo :-)

  6. I love this great quilt. Those fabrics add up to a more than beautifull quilt!!
    Love from Amsterdam.

  7. This is so beautiful Laney! The simplicity of the pattern allows those fabrics to really shine.

    Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!

  8. Quilt is great! And there's something to be said for a simple design wall! The most important thing is that you have the wall up and are using it!

  9. So pretty!! Simple, but the fabric you used are beautiful!

  10. I'm so high tech that I use the floor! No judgement here though it did make me laugh. I really like this one. Great job on finding the balance in the prints.


I'd love to hear what you have to say
