origins quilt

- love how that blue solid strip on the backing really shows up the quilting pattern.

- binding close-ups

These days I try to make my quilts largely from my stash and supplement with a few new fabrics here and there. This pattern from @liftinglimitsquilting was a really fun one to play with, and perfect for using up some of my fat quarters that had been sitting on the shelf for a while.

Going rogue (again) with mixing colour & pattern and thinking of a summertime vibe! Lots of pastels in purple, some paler neutrals tossed in with the brighter pinks & green, and a little punch of dark blue. The fabrics are a mix of designers I had in my stash, a little AMH, some Kaffes, along few Jennifer Paganelli fabrics.  

I matched up a large bit of leftover wide AMH backing with a blending blue solid for my backing. I sent my quilt off for a spot of longarm quilting by Leeanne from quiltmekiwi, an E2E pattern called 'totally mod circles'. And after a bit of rummaging around, I found a multi-coloured Kaffe stripe that worked well with both back & front for the binding. Finished quilt measures 60" x 60".
