Just a little aside- I've been having wifi connection issues, and my regular fonts wouldn't load in my photo editor, so my watermark is slightly different on my photos. Incidentally, this is also the reason why my NTT post is a little late today!
I must say that it felt so nice to get this one finished. I hadn't actually finished a quilt since Shattered Rainbow before my sister's wedding in July, and my life just felt wrong!
I used all of my scraps in the backing and paired it with that awesome Denyse Schmidt navy and orange dot fabric. I used this same fabric to bind my Dash of Luck quilt, and have always loved it. When I saw that my local shop managed to find a bolt of it, I snagged some yardage pronto.
I really like the way the blue and orange fabrics pop against the Kona Pewter background. Even though I usually go for a lighter background fabric, I'm really happy with this choice. I also love the look of the scrappy binding against it.
I actually had quite a productive sewing weekend last weekend, and have plenty more to show you, but for now, let's just get on to the highlights from last week's party!
I featured the block for this quilt several weeks ago, by Good Golly Ginger, and now that the whole quilt is finished, I love it even more!
Tanya Quilts in CO linked up this gorgeous rainbow orange peel quilt. I am such a sucker for a rainbow quilt!
and last, but not least, Carol Quilts Sometimes linked up this Summer Sampler beauty.
I have to tell you, with the craziness of starting school in general, not to mention moving to an entirely new grade, I have especially enjoyed browsing through all of the quilty goodness. I almost always look through the party links while in bed, right before turning in for the night, and even though the time has been shorter than I would prefer, I have so appreciated those few minutes of creative joy each night. So, thanks...and I am truly looking forward to checking out what you all have going on this week!
