Nature Walk Quilt


Posted on February 14th, by Amy in work in progress. 19 comments

Remember the organic fabrics I received a while back?  I had been staring at them, pawing them, waiting for the moment my plan formulated!  Last week I figured it out, I had a couple yards of bella – weathered teak, and decided to incorporate it to make a throw size quilt.  I cut the blocks out, and thought I might get the first set of seams sewn that day…I managed to sew them completely!  In one day!  On and off all afternoon and evening.  The next day I laid out the blocks in the afternoon, and sewed the top together!  Crazy bit of productivity – usually I just work that way when I have a deadline!

My Nature Walk quilt top!  I think of the blocks as a chunky log cabin.  Obviously it came together quickly, and I love the meandering path created by the solids and print areas in the blocks.  Perfect for a nature walk!

It measures 50″x60″ and I hope to get it quilted soon…but I’m out of batting at the moment.  Soon!

Also the winner of the giveaway from last week — Amy aka Sukie!  Congratulations Amy!

Happy Valentines Day Friends!  I hope you are with your loved ones today -

    It’s lovely. I love the brown fabrics. I often use white in fabrics. I need to start using some different colors for the base.

    So am I! I need to go some more batting. Super cute design. It came together nicely. The solid sections really create a nice contrast to the patterns and make the quilt.
