navy plus quilt
Hi, there! Just stopping by to say that I’m still around, even though things have been quiet lately. My computer is suffering a major malfunction, and as I type this, it is burning hot and sounds like it is getting ready for takeoff. We’ve had a good run over the past 7 years. But I think the time has come to say goodbye. Until I can upgrade my tech, posting will continue to be limited, but I’m hoping to get back to normal again soon!

Enough about that, I’m here to share a quilt that I just finished up! It’s all ready to donate to my sons’ preschool fundraiser. Made entirely with Art Gallery fabrics (with the exception of the Kona solid plusses), it came together in a snap! That’s because I used almost every charm that I collected through the Art Gallery charm swap (hosted by Michelle and Chelsey). And to make the blocks, I used the super-simple Flickr┬átutorial by Wooden Spoon. You may remember the blocks I made for do. Good Stitches with the same tutorial here. I fell in love with Cath’s idea of the dark navy plus among the low-volume colored fabrics, and basically applied the same concept here with louder fabrics. I love how spring-y the fabrics feel all together. And yet the deep blue navy of the plusses gives it a sophisticated feel, in spite of all the pastels. I also have to add, the Art Gallery fabrics are soooooo soft! This quilt is perfect for the warmer spring weather!

I hope that the new owner loves it as much as I do. Happy Spring!

  1. Hi Kim, I saw this the other night at the LIMOD guild meeting and loved it, the art gallery fabric is so pretty. The fabrics go together so nicely and the navy makes a great contrast. Thanks for all the info about the pattern in the posting. Hope to see you again at another meeting.

  2. I’m in awe at how well these prints play together with the unifying navy plusses and binding. I’m with Audrey: there may be a quilt very close to this one in my future!

  3. This is so pretty. I love the look of navy with those beautiful Art Gallery prints. It feels so organized and relaxed, maybe it’s cause I’m projecting myself on that beach right now cause I could really go for some beach time.

  4. Don’t you just love a quick/easy pattern that produces a super classy quilt? And the navy is just perfect, makes everything look so grown up.
    Your computer is 7 years old?? Seriously? You should have let it retire and become a toaster years ago! Time to get yourself something new…life’s too short to battle with technology. ­čśë

  5. I LOVE THIS QUILT! I would never think to put all those charms together but they look amazing and you’re right about the navy giving the whole quilt a level of sophistication. Great job, can I put my name in for the raffle?
