minty green

This quilt is a quilt
only
because I bought 2 little fat quarters.
They were those little bits of fabric
that you CAN'T pass up when you
ACCIDENTALLY walk into
the local
quilt shop!!!
;)
And then
ONCE you have the fat quarters...
they tug at your mind
until you HAVE TO
sit down and SEW!!!!
 
Can you find the flowery fabric triangles??

I loved the retro feel of this fabric.
I added strips of color...
and some vintage solid minty green.

It's a FINISH!!!

I even added some black calico binding.
I think it's feeling RIGHT at home in this quilt!

I made this one
Because it HAD to be made.
LOL!!!
 
I bet you've made some quilts like that too!!!

  1. I totally know how you feel, but I usually lose steam after the first few blocks! I do like that flowery fabric.

  4. I'm working on a quilt like that now, only my trouble started with some blue batiks. :-) I love the colors in yours, and the pattern the blocks create. Too pretty!

  5. Love that flowery fabric, too. I used it on the back of a quilt. And your binding.. I've also had that same fabric. So you know I love that, too. I want to know how to "accidentally" walk into the local quilt shop. I'll arrange to have the same accident, if I can.

  9. Years ago at the Georgetown Quilt show I saw some pink and white swirled fabric that had a blotchy swirl of metalic gold in it. I knew immediately what I was going to make. 9 patches of red and green with this pink in the center. (I'm stock piling Christmas quilts for a while now, to give everyone one at the same time.)
    Your quilt turned out great!
    Hugs
