Crafty Sampler Block of the Month 2012 - Completed

I finished putting the binding on my Crafty BOM this weekend (a second quarter goal), sitting at a yard sale all day helped me get it done.   This one I tried not to quilt it as much as I have my other quilts.  My husband complains that they are not warm so I will see what he thinks of this one, not sure how a quilt is not warm.  In the negative space I used circle templates and then did random free form fillers for each of them.  

The back I just did improv and tried to use fabric from the top.  

Here are some close ups of the quilting. 

For the binding I used the orange haystack print from Madrona Road Collection by Violet Craft for Michael Miller Fabrics.  This one finished in at 64" x 82".

Thank you for stopping by and visiting.

  1. I love the blues and oranges Abby, they're such a nice combination. Such a pretty quilt and very unique. It certainly looks very warm!

  2. I really like all your FMQ circles, all so differents.

  3. I love the colour combinations you've used, and your negative space quilting is fabulous. I agree, how is a quilt not warm? Maybe he just needs to layer them!!

  4. Congrats on the finish, love the quilting!

  5. Abby, this is beautiful! Do I have your permission to feature one photo from your post and a link to your site on the Craftsy quilting blog?
