Looking Up or is Down?

Here is the diagonal strip quilt that was finished recently.

Tanya and I are on vacation this week so you get pictures but not much else today.  I wish I had more time to talk about this quilt as I love it.  I will be making a pattern out of this that can be done scrappy style or strip stile like this.


Some pictures of the back.



This earth tone quilt looks so much better in person that what the pictures show.  The fabric for this quilt is really interesting it is Natural Instincts by McKenna Ryan a Hoffman Fabrics Line. It was densely quilted in horizontal lines that seem to add a lot more texture.  The back is made with leftovers.  It might be hard to decide which side is the front. It is bound with brown, but because of the gradient colors, it looks like a scrappy binding.

  It has been added to our etsy shop.  There is a table top version coming soon.

Very nice quilt. And appropriatley named... It seems to draw the eye down in the first shot --- And up in the second shot. Love the straight-line quilting. Great finish!

This is really stunning, almost like a painted canvass with the earthy tones.

The ombre strips are perfect in this quilt. It is really mesmerizing to look at. Love it!

Ever since strip quilts have appeared, I've pondered them on the diagonal. I love it! And the colors are such a good choice!

I hope you are having a great time. I love that quilt. I generally don't like strippy quilts, but the fabrics here make this one really beautiful. It's definitely modern looking, which I know you've been playing with.

That ombre fabric gives a really cool effect to the strips!
