Something New Sampler - Finished!!

I so enjoyed doing this quilt-a-long with Amy at 13 Spools. It was so fun to experiment with lots of different techniques. The quilting took me much longer than I had anticipated as I quilted each block differently and played with lots of new FMQ patterns. Some of the seams on some blocks (the cathedral windows and folded patchwork!) were rather hard work to get through and the stitching went a bit awry in places! 
But here it is done:

And some close ups of the quilting as the picture above doesn't really show much of my hard work! :)

Pinless Curves
Modern Bargello
Folded Patchwork
Cathedral Windows

Border - figure eights

This is the back of the trapunto block, I just love how the trapunto stands out. The pebble maze is a great pattern for creating texture too, although I did find it quite an intensive pattern to do!!

The back was just a collection of the fabrics left over from the front, that got sewn together randomly. I used all the pink fabrics to create the binding as not many had been used on the front and I felt it worked well against the solid green.

There we have it. Finished! Yay!

  1. Your quilting looks amazing! I love how each section of quilting is like an extension to the block. Nice work!

  2. What a lovely quilt! You did an amazing job!!!

  3. HOLY COW, the flickr photo did not do your quilting justice! This turned out positively gorgeous!! I am soooo in awe of your beautiful FMQ, and it was so cool to echo the designs of the blocks in your negative space. Love. Love love love. Congrats on your finish!

  4. Love it and great job on the quilting!
