Today I am sharing a quilt I made using my friend Maureen Cracknell's new line Fleet and Flourish for Art Gallery fabrics. She invited me to join in on the fun and the project I made today is a simple brick style quilt.
I just cut 3" x 12" strips from her line and from a cream linen fabric and alternated their layout. There are so many fun stripe patterns in the line that I wanted to keep some of them whole so you could see how the pattern ran, so this was a nice way of sewing up the collection without breaking it up too much.
I finally had some great sun this morning to take some quick pics, I tried yesterday and failed quite miserably.... the storms wouldn't give me a break!
For the back I did half cream linen and half a cream with gray dot that I had in my stash from Joanns, there really isn't a gray in the line but I think it matches up quite nicely.
For my binding, I took the remaining 3" x 12" strips I had cut and cut them down to 2.5" wide, sewed them all up into one long strip and made some fun scrappy binding!
I used a cream aurifil thread and kept along the lines of the quilt for a nice clean look.
This quilt is going to a special friend of mine who I have been promising a quilt to forever, the entire time I kept thinking that this line was just her style, so I hope she loves it as much as I do.
Thanks for stopping by today friends!
