As I was looking through one pile of my quilts, I realized I missed posting about one of my finishes – and it’s one I really like! I’ve made more than one quilt from this fabric collection and after having done a charity quilt, thought I had finished it all up. Then…I rearranged some fabric in my main closet and there it was – a bunch more!

I cut it all up into triangles, mixed them up and began piecing. For the sashing I chose a gray and white polka dot rather than plain white. It brings out the colors in the prints rather than a stark contrast. Admittedly, polka dots are one of my favorite blenders.

This past year I have been challenging myself with pieced borders to help bring out the main design. It’s a little more time consuming, but well worth it. Cindy B, my long-arm quilter, used a really fun quilt pattern giving the quilt a lot of movement.  I really do like this collection – fun and bright – a good choice for leading us into Spring!!

  1. Oh, this is so pretty! The pattern reminds me of the last quilt I made called the Baby Lattice Quilt. I do love polka dots, too, and they usually seem to find their way into so many projects. I like the less-white-contrast in your sashing. Great work!
