Size:  65"" by 78""
Fabric: Kona Cotton in Jade Green, Teal Blue, Pool, Windsor
Binding:  Jade Green  Backing:  New Bedford, Rising Sun Wallpaper by Denyse Schmidt
Quilted: by me with Aurifil 50 wt in bright Turquoise, 5005 in an irregular grid

I finished this quilt a few weekends ago.  It sitting waiting for a sleeve as I will pop it into our guild show next month.  This is a fabulous design from Nydia Kehnle, called Dimension.  It is paper pieced and I biggie sized it with extra blocks to make it much larger.  The 3 D effect is quite the thing.  It is made entirely from Kona solids for the front and binding.  And I bought them all at Sew Sisters.  If you read this quick and pop over there, they may still have their Konas on sale for the weekend.  Quick!

It was a breezy day when I took these pictures.  The grass was so green even though it was mid winter.  It was just a tease though as we were hit with snowfall and cold this week and we look like we live in a winter wonderland today. 

I backed the quilt with a wonderful Denyse Schmidt print.  Mostly grey with a bit of a sheen and a small print.  Almost a bit masculine.  It was a perfect fit.  Quilted with a bright turquoise Aurifil, in an irregular grid.  Lots of clothespins for this one! 


  1. What a perfect name for a quilt with so much dimension. You chose just the right values to create the 3-D effect.

  2. What a wonderful quilt. The 3D effect is awesome.
