Alice - The Quilt Pattern

That's right, Alice is finished and I think she has turned out so pretty!  Who said blue and green should never be seen?


This was such a fun quilt to make, I've really enjoyed playing with my green/blue fabric scraps, and piecing simple blocks with a great effect.


And just like any other quilt, Alice deserves a fancy back.  The Owl fabric is by Australian fabric designer Saffron Craig, and was just the perfect size and color for the back of this quilt.


For binding fabric I have chosen a Kaffe Fassett Spot ~ an aqua dot on chocolate brown.  It ties in well with the back of the quilt,  and adds a bold frame to the overall quilt top.


And the good news is that I have written a quilt pattern for this quilt.

 Alice ~ The Quilt Pattern is now available from my Etsy Store


I have also prepared several scrap fabric bundles which will help get started making this quilt, and will provide you with a color guide for further fabric selection.  I know that choosing fabrics can be a huge hurdle in getting your quilt started.  You can find the listing for the scrap bundles here. SOLD  Starter fabric bundles INCLUDES  the Alice ~ The Quilt Pattern.


Happy Stitching!
Rita

  7. Rita...I see Alice can look down lots of rabbit holes!:)

    Looking at my stash blue and green are the dominate colors. I really like how you just put the blue/green/wt blocks on the top and the bottom.

    So....B is for?:)

  11. Ok, I like the front of the quilt. Blue and green work perfect together. But OMG, what happened with back there? It's fabulous! The back, the binding, the way they combine with the front...and the quilting...If I had to choose one perfect quilt considering how the front, back, binding and quilting work together, this would be the one! I just don't know enough eniglish words to describe it :))
