Madrona Road Baby

  
Quilt Stats

Name:  Madrona Road Baby
Design: Scrappy triangles... my design
Size:  39" by 46"
Fabric:  Madrona Road with some solids
Quilted: by me with Aurifil 50 wt in variegated grey

Okay.  This is a finish.  Madrona Road Baby.  This is a guild challenge.  Our fabric got lost so we did not have it in time for the big Modern Quilt Madrona Road Challenge but we did it anyway just for the guild.  I let the fabric simmer on my sewing table for awhile and then I decided to go with triangles.  The first time I made a quilt with triangles.  Don't look too close at the points.  Just saying. I added in some Kona Ash, some white and a nice light yellow from my stash to round out the random scrappy.  I didn't use all the prints from the line.  I was selective.  I carried the quilting out into the narrow border.  I like that.  And bound in the sprout print in graphite.  Quilted in Aurifil 50 wt in a variegated grey.  Nice thread!  I love how the quilting looks from the back.  Diamonds!!!!







Linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish it up Friday and Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story.

  9. It's lovely, Cathy! Triangles aren't the easiest to work with, are they? I have a stash of that fabric from our guild challenge. I'm still trying to figure out what to do with it. Thanks for the inspiration!
