When I saw Madrona Road, right after it was first released, I knew I needed to use it for a quilt for our bed. The blues and greens and yellows are just right for the wall color and rug that are already in place. I picked up a selection of Madrona Road at Fresh Squeezed Fabrics months ago and have finally cut into them.
I am using my Sizzix Rose Dream block die to create these blocks. (They are square in real life, these pictures are a little distorted.) This is definitely just a slow here and there kind of project because I am going to need a lot of these blocks for our queen sized bed. I am using different whites and off whites and creams for the backgrounds and then the blue/green/yellow colorway of Madrona Road for the rest of the fabrics plus I am adding in anything from my stash that is the right colors.
This is what I have precut so far. I want to cut more so that I can bring it on a quilting retreat with me in March (my first ever!). Can you think of any prints that would work with my colors that you don’t see in this picture?
This is the room I am working with. Our walls are a periwinkle shade of blue, my absolute favorite. The trim is a linen white and the curtains are dotted swiss sheers that I made about 10 years ago now.
This is our area rug. I’d love suggestions for more prints to throw in.
Edited to add: I was asked if the blocks are pieced or appliqued. They are pieced.
