Dizzy Kitchen

Posted on October 28th, by Amy in finished quilt. 76 comments

I’ve been dying to share this quilt with all of you, but was asked to keep images off-line until the line is/was released.  Yay – I can finally share!

I was contacted by Blend Fabrics last month, and after a series of emails, fabric landed on my doorstep for a quilt for their booth at Market.

The collection is called Kitchy Kitchen, and I love the bold colors, and graphic prints.  The lemon/lime wedges, kitchen utensils that pop on pink, and all the veggies on navy are so fun!  I enjoyed piecing this one, and look forward to seeing more great prints from Blend.

I used one block, and alternated the colors/fabrics to show off the fabrics, and create the dizzy pattern.  It measures 45″ x 54, and each block finished at 9″.

For the quilting, I took it to Natalia.  We agreed that with all the activity in the fabrics and piecing, an all over quilting would fit it perfectly.  Here’s a better look –

Super cute, and fits the quilt perfectly – thanks Natalia!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoy the Quilt Festival –
