A Pretty Finish!

Earlier this week I managed to finish up my Pretty Patchwork quilt! I wasn't able to get photos sooner partly due to the weather.  Kaaren over at The Painted Quilt called her version 'Stopped Me in My Tracks'. It certainly caught my eye!   Kaaren made hers a bit bigger and in yellow and white. She generously offered the pattern free on her blog. Head over here to see her version!
I had this pretty blue print in my stash not knowing what to make until I saw this pattern. It is a very soft muted blue with little yellow flowers. 
I straight line quilted a crosshatch pattern through the 49 square patch and in the 9 patch cornerstone units. I FMQ a braided rope pattern in the sashings. 
The backing is a striped blue, green, and yellow striped print from my stash. 
The binding is a soft yellow and white stripe. Also from my stash!
It feels good to make a quilt completely from my old stash with the 
exception of the Kona white background fabric, a staple in my stash. 
The quilt size is 53" x 69"
Linking to Fabric Tuesday over at Quilt Story.

Before September is over, I needed to work on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge block. This month's color is rosy reds.
 Here are all the blocks that I have finished so far. 
Only 1 month left! What color will it be?
Head over to SoScrappy to see what others have been working on this month.

I finally got fabric and cut it for the Mod Bear Paw QAL. I'm a bit behind but hopefully will have some time to catch up. I now have a deadline for this quilt. 
Check it out over at Sew Fresh Quilts!

That's all folks!
Happy Quilting!


  1. Fabulous finish!! (And your RSC quilt is coming together nicely, too.)

  2. Your finished quilt is very sweet! I love the way you quilted it! I think your next block for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is going to be yellow. So glad to see you joining in the MOD Bear Paw quilt along!

  3. Ahh I love your finished patchwork. Makes me want to make this quilt. Simply beautiful. Another beautiful lantern. I jumped on the RSC band wagon this month! Loved my little block .... now I want to make an all red and cream quilt. So easily off on a whim....Hope I can stay on the wagon. Janita

  4. Such a pretty quilt. It has a simple vintage look to it that translate into cozy comfort. Great new red block. It looks like yellow might be your next color.

  5. Your quilt is lovely, so soft and dreamy with those soothing colors. I could curl up in it and go to sleep instantly. Very nice choices on the quilting, giving something extra to the sashing. The group of lanterns is so bright and colorful. Well done!

  6. LOVE your quilting on the first quilt. Very classic. I am also making a Soul Searching quilt in RSC16 colors. I can't post it because my BFF quilty friend is also making one. We will be mailing them across the USA to each other when finished. I'm excited. It's getting close to being finished.

  7. What a SWEET quilt. Looks soft. Comforting. Though I'm drawn to colorful quilts, this one speaks to me. Your RSC lantern block quilt is coming along beautifully. I hope yellow is the October color. I need some yellow blocks in my quilts.
