Almost Wordless Wednesday


This quilt is testing my photography skills today, it is the best of many many shots!  I've spent too much time in really awkward positions today trying to get this just right!!  (See!  Even here the quilt is upside down!)


After an early morning dash to my local fabric store for my new favorite Amy Butler Love print, I did however manage to piece together the backing.  This quilt is now ready for basting!

  1. I love it, thanks for showing more of the quilt. Did you do rows with random strips? However you did it, It looks fab.

  3. Rita, you are the master of mixing prints and colors! This is so lovely and fresh! And I am dead curious, did you use three or more different widths of those columns?

  6. Oh that's amazing. I've been studying and had an exam and missed a day of checking blogs. I saw this post and thought I recognised the layout....scrolled down a ohh lah lah ....one of my favourite books (another of my night time reading stash!!!). This is a gorgeous interpretation. Well done Rita!

  11. Rita - LOVE both of those quilt tops!
    Is the common factor in the 1st top that all the fabrics must have white or creme in them? Otherwise, I could have never come up with such a diverse combination! It looks awesome!

    And I received your little package of green fabric in the mail - THANK YOU so much! They're all fabulous!
    Hopefully you got mine as well.
    Cheers!
