Finally Off the Design Wall

This quilt has been up on my design wall for months. It feels good to have it down and done.

 Not only is it done, it's all washed and soft. Simon, of course, had to test that out.

 I used Aurifil 50 wt white thread for the whole project - top and bobbin. Quilted beautifully.

 Simon is pointing out one of his favorite blocks. I combined many of Leah Day's fills within some organic shapes surrounded with straight lines.

The front is fun, but so is the back. I just used fleece as the batting and backing, just two layers. This whole project was just an experiment to see how well quilting blocks using fleece and joining the using this QAYG method. 

The quilting shows up really nicely on the back, even better after washing.

Pea Gravel Path is one of my favorite

I've been a fan of Leah Day's for a very long time and she is the reason I'm somewhat fearless in challenging myself to try new fills and techniques.

I'll be linking up with to Linky Tuesday at FreeMotion by the River and Fabric Tuesday at  Quilt Story.

Color Me Quilty!



  1. That looks great Pat. I have been hesitant to use fleece that way, but you may have inspired me.

  2. I really like the asymetric look of your quilt. Usually, I don't like much the end look of that technique, as the sashing is too visible. Breaking it down the way you've done it is pretty cool. May I use one of your picture to illustrate a QAYG demo I'll be doing at my guild ?
