Congrats to Darcie for being the giveaway winner. Thank you for all the comments. I may still be obsessing about Marmalade.
This quilt was whipped up pretty quickly using my standby favorite pattern, the disappearing nine patch. Using scraps from the red, white and blue triangle quilt and a few solids to complete the neutral look.
Putting pieces on the design wall has to be one of my favorite aspects of quilting. Always fun to just throw things up there randomly then sort and move pieces around. Hopefully this keeps one color from overwhelming the quilt.
Using straight line quilting in gray kept the quilt simple and coordinates with the back very well.
I want to do something similar with the scrap reds from the triangle quilt.
The quilt is currently at it’s home in NY being snuggled on by a new baby. He looked so happy in the photo I was emailed.
