I am super excited to share my latest finish with you though. I've named it Text and Tiles, and now that it's all quilted, I love it even more.
*Edited to Add- since a few have asked and I forgot to mention it, this is my Courtyard Tiles pattern, and it is available in my Craftsy and Etsy shops! :)
I think the scrappy text background adds so much great texture and interest to the quilt, and doesn't detract from the focus fabrics at all, which was an initial worry. Even though the pattern and fabrics themselves are both modern, something about the text background makes it feel even more artsy and modern to me.
I pieced the backing with all of my scraps, and although you can't really see it in this picture, the text prints are pieced together in a large strip across the top of the backing.
I opted to make a scrappy binding, and that kept me from adding those pieces to my scrap jars, so that's definitely a win in my book!
Without further ado, check out some of the highlights from our last party two weeks ago. I'm loving the color illusion in this quilt by Quilting is More Fun Than Housework-
Erica at Dresses and Spurs shared this fun quilt.
And this rainbow Modern Cross beauty is from Deb at New Creative State.
Even though I was having a fabulous time on vacation, I really missed last week's party. I can't wait to see what you link up this week!
1. You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post (not to your home page!) to make it easier for others.
3. Please remember to spread the word and post my button or a text link.
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!
5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!
*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop" when selecting your thumbnail photo. For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work! :)
