Spring Time


Quilt Documentation # 147

This is not an original design. I made this quilt last year, after seeing a photo online and thinking what a great idea for using a panel or a piece of fabric that would show off better as a whole rather than cut up.

Regrettably I can't give credit to the designer as I can't find the blog again.
If anyone happens to know whose design it is, I would be happy if you would let me know.

Spring Time

My feature fabric was cut into four sections on slight diagonals.

I picked colours from the feature fabric for the strips and accent colours.

Striped panel
I used a light cotton batting for a nice light summer quilt.

Linking up to The Needle and Thread Network, featuring all Canadian bloggers and Nina Marie's Off the Wall Friday  where there's a lot of eye candy.

Happy Quilting,
