Spring Bounty

>> Tuesday, August 12, 2014

I made and distributed quite a few quilts this spring. I even remembered to take pictures of most of them, but I completely failed on the blogging front. I'm going to try to remedy this backlog for the rest of the month....

First up, what I like to think of as Spring Bounty. Lots of color, lots of favorite fabric tidbits. It's a baby quilt that I made using Jenna's Arizona Quilt tutorial.

The center squares for the quarter log-cabins are an array of neutrals, ranging from white to cream to taupe (or is it beige? I'm not really sure sure what the difference between taupe and beige is except I asked my new landlord if the walls were beige as I recalled them to be from pictures and he responded that they are light taupe. Anyways....) The brights are all from the stash and mostly from my scrap bins. It was fun to pluck out fabrics I really like, since I didn't necessarily need much to make the blocks (hence some logs are on the skinner side, just depended what I had, which was perfect for the patter).

Can you see the quilting? Maybe, maybe not. It's an organic, slightly unevenly spaced and occasionally wavy-lined grid. I like easy quilting and eyeballing it without too much concern for precision (ummm, or none at all) was pretty perfect. I think I borrowed this quilting idea from Latifah. Indeed, I did: from her marvelous Big O quilt.

The back is pieced and brings together an assortment of bright, fun prints that coordinate with the front. The middle multi-color print is one of those fabrics that hung around in my stash for so so long waiting to be used, and I'm glad I finally found the right fit for it.

Spring Bounty now lives with Talia in Maryland, though Napoleon may be using it just as much.

Ronit, you are right about Napoleon as he chooses only the best blankets. Spring Bounty is stunning and so happy! It will certainly brighten up Talia's room. Thanks for adding another beautiful quilt to the family collection.
