Quilted Living is written by Gerri Robinson of Planted Seed Designs. Quilted Living is filled with 10 amazing designs for summer time. They are absolutely fabulous and just make you want to visit a beach, or light some fireworks :) The directions are super easy to follow and the diagrams are wonderful. And the pictures in the book are gorgeous. Just an all around winner!!!
When you look at it from an angle, it has a chain design!!!! And we all know how much I love (Irish) Chain designs!!!!! So fun!!!!
I was also super excited to use my Pie Making Day Bundle that I got at Sample Spree. This is Brenda Ratliff's first collection with RJR Fabrics and I loved it the second I saw it and have been so excited to cut into it. And it was absolutely perfect for this Streamers design. I love that every print is tone on tone so it really makes the design stand out!!! And I just love, love, love all of those yummy, rich colors!!!
When it came time to quilt, I figured a Streamers quilt with a summer blog hop called for some fireworks quilting. I did my little bursts in a smaller scale than usual and had so much fun with it. And, of course, I used my favorite 402 So Fine thread for that perfect blend. (in fact, it blends so well it is kind of hard to see, sorry about that.)
But I absolutely love all of that beautiful texture!!! So fun, huh ;) This quilt was so much fun to make and it went together super easy and super quick. A great go-to summer throw!!! I love my new Streamers Quilt and I can't wait to go curl up with it under a tree out back with a good book ;)

Love your streamers quilt and the colorful fabrics, and the quilting is amazing. Love to see your work!!ReplyDelete
interesting - I am not a fan of all the prints in pie day - have always loved the bright colors, your creation shows how smaller cuts of those prints can work in a quilt because of the color and pattern - nice jobReplyDelete
I love this quilt pattern and your colors look great.ReplyDelete
Great job and I love the way it is quilted. LReplyDelete
Absolutely beautiful. Love the fabric you chose. I have had this book in my cart for weeks now. I think it's time to bite the bullet.ReplyDelete

Bright and cheery for summer--and I like how you did the binding!ReplyDelete
Perfect combination of pattern and fabrics!! So fun to see this...my fave project from the book, I think :) and you're right, it Is like a chain, a diamond chain :)ReplyDelete
Oh it's absolutely stunning and just like party streamers to look at. I love the fireworks quilting too, it's a very happy quilt😀ReplyDelete
I can see why you'd love this quilt - a lovely Irish Chain quilt, I think, but with a great twist.ReplyDelete
