I am so excited to get to share with you another one of those "secret finises". I actually finished this quilt back in September of 2014, so it is so fun to finally get to share it. So . . .here is Argyle Socks!!
Argyle Socks is featured in the Summer 2015 edition of Fons and Porter's Easy Quilts. And it really does go together super easy using strip piecing and some quick bordered blocks.
And I bet you can guess what inspired the design. Yup, my husband's Argyle Socks. I love the wonderful motion this design creates and the mixture of the white and brown background playing off the bright colors from Denyse Schmidt's Hadley line, really makes it pop!!!
When it came time for quilting, I decided to do some swirls in the colored squares. I think I can safely say, swirls are my go-to filler design ;)
Then in the background squares, I did some back and forth lines in opposite directions to really make it pop and then some ribbon candy in the borders. I really had so much fun quilting this one up.
Argyle Socks finises at 56 1/2" x 68" making it the perfect size to cuddle up in with a good book. And now that it is back, I think I need to find a new book ;)
And that is Argyle Socks :) If you make your own using the magazine pattern, I would love to see it!! You can email me a picture at firstname.lastname@example.org or add it to my flickr group here ;)
Have a Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
