My quilter and I called this quilt "Modern", for lack of a better name. It is an Evelyn Sloppy pattern called Apple Crisp, from her book 40 Rotary Cut Quilts. I have someone very pizzazzy in mind for this quilt. The colors are so amazing, and I think she will love it. The fabric collection is called Fresh Air by Chez Moi for Moda. This quilt was fun to make, and one that I actually wouldn't mind making again. If you have a fabric collection with lots of beautiful prints and some scrappy backgrounds, this is an amazing finished project. Nearly all the 40 odd fabrics in this range were dark, not many lights at all. I am the queen of scrappy backgrounds, so coming up with a lot of them was a cinch. Anyway, this quilt really came out nice after quilting. And check out that border print. Woo hoo!
This is another Fig Tree quilt. I am so sorry I cannot remember the name of the pattern or the fabric collection. Some of the fabric I used is printed with a map of Paris. The block was pretty simple, as you can see-a framed nine patch set on the diagonal. I think it is interesting how the lattice border projects into the outer border. This one will go to a niece who I think will enjoy something girly.
Isn't it interesting that for a while I was really into buying Fig Tree fabrics and making Fig Tree patterns, but I end up giving those quilts away. They just don't work with my style of decorating, as much as I like the colors and prints. Well, I am optimistic this will go to a good home where it will be loved.
My son Ahren has arrived from Dublin, Ireland! I am in complete heaven to have him in the house with me. I keep staring at him and wanting to pinch myself. I miss him so much. He may be persuaded to move home, we shall see.
Did Christmas totally sneak up on you? Having it fall on a Sunday just threw me for some reason. I don't think I have ever left my shopping until so late! Thank heaven's for Amazon, right? And believe it or not, Walmart of all places came through with some hard to find toys that arrived within two days of me ordering them.
ADDED LATER: Hildy identified the fabric first as Patisserie by Fig Tree. Patty searched my old posts and discovered the pattern is a Heather Mulder Petersen pattern called Around the Block from her book called On a Roll Again. You guys are awesome!
