There is so much negativity surrounding the internet but so many positives too. Without the internet, I never would have known Melinda Newton and Charise Randell who made this quilt with me. For that, I am so grateful! I explained a lot about how this quilt came to be in this post so I will not repeat it today. But these ladies went above and beyond, making beautiful blocks for my quilt.
I just loved piecing together all the blocks of different sizes and having a little fun changing background fabrics here and there.
Melinda made such a massive needle block…I knew I wanted to highlight it. I quilted the rest of the quilt with 1/2″ diagonal lines but within that block, I quilted in a diagonal grid. I added that quilting element in two other small patches on the quilt too but they really show on the mustard solid.
My finished quilt measures 47″ x 56″.
I am not always good about labeling my quilts but I am trying to improve in that department. My backing fabric is a Hope Valley print from my stash, with a little scissor print inserted above the label for fun. The binding is a Carolyn Friedlander print of just the perfect color for this quilt!
Thanks again Charise and Melinda; this was such a great collaboration.
