Another Goal Completed

This is my third goal for the First Quarter Finish Along.   I pieced this quilt back in 2012 using a pattern by Valori Wells called Annie.   

This was really hard to decided what to quilt as the large print fabric almost makes any quilting just disappear.  I decided to do a sort of zig zag quilting in the black bars on the sides and up the middle of the quilt.  For the large print areas I loosely quilted the details from the fabric.  On the back it looks like I sketched flowers all over.

For the back I pieced together using leftover fabric from the front.

The fabric selection for this one was a big step for me on stepping outside my comfort zone but I think it has come together nicely.  Even if the husband is still not sure about it, since he is not really a purple fan. Oh well can't please them all.  

This one finished up at 72" x 97".

Thank you for stopping by and visiting. 

Cheers, 
Abby

  1. Abby, this is amazing! I love the design and the quilting detail. That purple and yellow print fabric on the front is awesome, and I never would have thought to pair it with the bold stripes. Inspiring!
