Hooray! I finished my Garden Fence quilt -- a wedding gift for a teacher at our littlest one's Montessori school -- in time for the first day of school (today). I quickly snapped up a few photos before drop-off this morning; they're not quite as clear as they could be...but time was of the essence!
The block design is Cynthia's. Very clever, fun, and satisfying...I recommend it!
I hope the happy couple enjoy this quilt; their wedding colours were yellow and blue, and I had fun pulling fabrics in that palette from my stash. I emphasized the yellow-and-blue combo in the backing fabrics, which are a super silky yellow solid from Connecting Threads and an aqua "burlap" print bought from sweet Brenda of Pink Castle Fabrics.
Sashing is Kona stone, and the binding is an Anna Maria Horner print from Garden Party (maintaining the garden theme!)
I'm calling this one "Blue Skies and Sunshine" -- and on this chilly, grey September morning we could use a little warmth and clarity.
