Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!!  We sure did…now the digging through and organizing starts. 

I finished this a year ago (can you tell by the wrinkles?) for Martingale…and now I can finally share it!The quilt was made for this book:  Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe (Patchwork Place).

It was the first time I’d contributed a quilt pattern to a book…and although it is  long process, it is always fun to be in a book!    It’s a great book…all 19 of the quilt projects are beautiful and the book styling is lovely.

I was asked to make this quilt last December on a tight schedule and no time…so I was thankful my friend and neighbor Amber pieced it for me within a couple of days (hi Amber!).   Then I quilt and bound it and sent it off.

The back is this great Erin McMorris print:

My favorite part is this green binding…I will never tire of striped bindings.

I got a copy on Christmas Eve, my daughter (5) got to look at it before I did though, I loved your quilt until I saw the number of triangles lol. I do really like the feel of the book and as I follow most of the blogs it's like friends chatting, the quilts look do-able too which is always great. Congrats x

What a fun quilt! So much movement. I agree with you about striped binding, I have an addiction to it as well. It just adds such playfulness to a quilt. Blessings!

I love the simplicity of the pattern and the soft background. What a great name for the quilt too. I do love your patterns-- they are well written and illustrated. Juice Boxes is my favorite (so far).

I got the book for Christmas and love it. You are the second contributor I have seen comment on the process of this book--not liking it. Didn't you have a quilt in a Chrissie Grace book? Was that different since it was a quilting bee thing?

Stacy Olson said...
