A Summer Quilt

Since picking up this bundle of greens at FibreFest last fall Anne's been busy hand piecing stacks of 9-patch blocks for a new quilt for her bed and it's coming together beautifully. She dropped by with it yesterday to see about potential border and backing options and so I've got a few pics to share.

Originally she was planning a Seminole border but after we found this tiny check for the binding she changed her mind and is going to keep things simple. The colours in the binding fabric nicely pull some of the darker colours in her prints.

It's 54" wide now so she will add another row or two and then just a white border and then bind it with the check. We looked at options for the backing but came up empty. She'll look for either a green or blue or maybe even a pink, if it's the right colour.

This colour combination is very fresh and summery - much lighter than the saturated colurs she tends to work with - so she's following Jane's lead and referring to it as a summer quilt....M
