Meet new pattern #3 – Meander!
(There is a surprise giveaway at the end!)
This is such fun quilt and to be honest, the design was a bit of an accident! As you can see, there are 2 backgrounds in the strip blocks- in the cover quilt I used a solid white and a blue print.
When I was first working on this design, I printed out the quilt to show someone. There was only one background. My printer, which had a tendency to dump spots of color or fail to print correctly, made some of the blocks in the center of the quilt lighter in color. And after reflection, decided it was better that way!
So I went back to EQ and played around with 2 backgrounds instead of 1. Now the blocks with the second background seem to meander thru the center of the quilt.
I love this quilt- it uses fat quarters and is so fun to make. The cover quilt uses fat quarters from Kate Spain’s line Grand Canal for Moda and this quilt below uses a brand new line from Michael Miller called Front Yard by Sandra Clemons.
See the little bunny face?
I am still binding this one.
And the binding is from the fat quarters- don’t you just love a scrappy binding?
And the quilting Crystal did is sooo cute! The design is leaves but don’t you think they look like bunny ears?
This adorable baby quilt uses a bunch fabrics from my stash that I put together, not just one line of fabric. You can easily mix and match!
Love the little giraffe face that peeks out now and then!
Funny, I made this quilt back in the spring as a gift and one of the background fabrics I used was little elephants. I sense an animal theme to my quilts!
And now for the surprise giveaway!
I have 16 fat quarters of Kate’s line Grand Canal and I have decided to share them with one of you! That is enough for the Meander lap quilt.
Giveaway is now closed! Thank you to all who commented- I read every one! And I am so glad you all like Meander!
