"Another Story" quilt

-  loving how those bold fabulous florals ended up transitioning out to create a gentle glowing edge.

- and how about a scrappy back for the win!

- why use just one green when I can use 5 or even 9? 

- love a bit of fussy cutting

Quilt details:
"Another Story" quilt {a pattern by Joana from thimbles and needles}
- most quilters want to make a hexi quilt, at least once, yes?
I used {mainly} Anna Maria Horner's fabulous florals from my stash
Finished: October 2021.
Machine Pieced.
Machine quilted edge to edge in straight lines by Leeanne from quiltmekiwi,
Leeanne's thread choice was 'Cleopatra' a scrumptious gold/bark colour to blend, and it looks so good!
The binding is a yarn dyed stripe in gold, 'stitch in saddle' from warp and weft wovens fabrics
Quilt size: 50" x 59"
Such a sweet little finish!
Linking up my finished quilt with Kelly for NTT here and with Rebecca for TGIFF here
and with Wendy for this weeks 'peacock party' over here

Until next time, Linda

Stunning!! I love the shade of green you chose. It's beautiful.

When I saw this on Instagram I was hoping to see you had quilted this one yourself! It really is a lovely quilt. The different green triangles across the quilt really provide an interesting contrast to the florals. And that bold, brave and rogue turquoise one!

There is so much to love in this quilt. Gorgeous fabrics, beautiful colours and careful fussy cutting. Definitely a winner.

Hexagons plus florals is a magic combination, and those subtly different shades of green for the triangles make everything seem to shimmer and glow -- much better than just one fabric for all of them. I love this so much and once again, I am wishing I could raid your scrap bins because you have the best fabric mix! Thanks for linking up with TGIFF and congrats on your latest lovely finish!

It turned out just lovely! What a nice combination of fussy-cutting, florals, subtle stars, and softness. It's a nice size for a lap quilt too. Will you keep it? Or give it away?

Kaja said...

Just lovely, as always. I especially like the fussy cutting and the binding, which pulls everything together perfectly.

Very lovely finish! I also saw your 'Nora' quilt finish, two beauties! Congratulations.
The backs are pleasing and go so well emphasizing that happy scrappiness vibe.
Thank you for the inspiration!
