A Fresh Finish

I finished my Fresh Stacks quilt on Saturday evening, just in time for my quilt guild meeting on Sunday, and I love how it turned out!


When I posted the photo of the finished top, a reader pointed out all of the different designers represented.  Amy Butler, Heather Bailey, Pat Bravo, Denyse Schmidt, Kate Spain are all there, plus some.  I didn't even consider that when I pulled the fabrics for this quilt, but I think the way they all play together is lots of fun!


I used up all of the scraps on the back and found this navy and teal tile print for the backing.  I love how the darker fabric makes the apple green and yellow pop.



Blues and greens are some of my favorite colors to work with, so I really enjoyed making this one.  This quilt measures 64 x 80" so it's either a really large throw, or a small twin size.

I have my fabric pulled, and a plan all sketched out for my next quilt and pattern, and I can't wait to get started!

  22. There's nothing like a show-and-tell at an upcoming guild meeting to get us to our machines and finishing projects up! I'm often motivated the same way. I love the soothing and serene palette here. I just bought a charm pack of Kate Spain's Horizon, so I'm playing with some of the same selections. : )

    1. Thank you! This is actually a free Moda Bake Shop pattern, called Stacked Squares. I just modified the dimensions a little bit to use fat quarters, rather than precuts.
