I finished working on this quilt back in October but totally forgot to post photos of it until now.  My older niece will be 18 soon.  She will be going off to college in a few months down the line and I wanted to make her a quilt that she could perhaps take with her for when she experiences dorm life.  I knew she loved green especially, so I tried to get a lot of bright greens (she used to have bright green walls in her old bedroom).  I thought some reds and blues would work well too, but I was a little nervous about how they’d end up looking like combined.  I am happy with the result!  She has it on her bed and loves it, so that makes my work worth it!

This quilt’s pattern was in a book called The Practical Guide to Patchwork.  It was the first quilt I had wanted to do ever because this was the first quilting book I had bought a few years ago.  This is the largest quilt I have made yet, and the most colorfully fun one too.  I really loved looking through each block and how different it was.  Once again, I got the fabrics from JAQS Fabrics on etsy.  I am sad I never actually got a shot of this entire quilt held out (it is just really large nearly 100×100).  Here are photos of it at least folded in half and such and you can see some of my favorite blocks.  The last shot if of the backing.quiltforKyana1QuiltforKyana3QuiltforKyana2QuiltforKyana7QuiltforKyana6QuiltforKyana5QuiltforKyana9QuiltforKyana8QuiltforKyana4

  1. This is absolutely beautiful! I love the new layout that you have here as well, it is really nice and streamlined. Your snapchats crack me up 🙂 Thanks for all of your positive comments on my posts lately, I appreciate your empathy and encouragement.

    • No one ever comments on my snapchats but I have fun doing them (my phone died completely so I am without a phone for a week but will snap away again. I love your snapchat toooooo)!
      Thanks so much for the comment on this quilt. It is one of the favorites I’ve made so far.
      The layout has been fun to work on today too!
