Bloggers quilt festival - The Meadow quilt

Name: The Meadow
Size:  59" *80
Techniques: paper piecing, hand quilting
Category: Throw Quilt, Hand-Quilted Quilt, Scrap Quilt
My number is 28
First time I see the  Victoria´s Triangles galore I thought I would never do such a block. Then I tried one, two, three... Finally I made fifteen blocks. I used nearly all of my fabric. These blocks remind me  flowers, but honestly, did you ever see flowers with so many colours?  Nevertheless my quilt´s  name is The meadow.   
Flowers grow on the meadow, to finish these flowers I choose some green fabric and also green for borders and Kaffe Fasset dots for inner border and binding. 

I always ask my daughter to help me with a name or colours or pattern. For quilting she   made a suggestion: Rainbow.  I  found embroidery string Sněhurka in my reserve.  I used ordinary needle. I used quite thick polyester batting.  Quilting through American fabric is very easy. I´m very nicely surprised. I think, I will buy them more often.

I adapt quilting pattern for quilting my border. I draw three variations. I have chosen the third.
My completed quilt.
It size is 59" *80" and I love it. Some people ask me to sell it. No, this quilt stay with me.
Can you see the dark violet string on the rihht size?  Measure twice.

  3. Jitko, to je nádhera. Látky jsi zkombinovala nádherně a ten vzor vypadá strašně obtížně. Tvému prošívání smekám. Jak to šlo tou Sněhurkou? Nekroutila se moc? Ale nachává hezké výrazné stehy, to mám moc ráda.
