Here she is... the red, navy and aqua quilt top. (I'm gonna have to think of a really good name for her?) My paper-pieced pride.
Finished her up this week by adding 40 alternating HSTs to her sides and a whole lot of the red, light blue, and dark blue 30s print called Granny's Treasure from P&B. An interesting mix of fabrics if you ask me. Maybe that's why I like it so much.
This was the last block I had to paper piece to complete my set of five. I modified the Nevada block in this book
to suit the style of the quilt. The photo in the book looks very spikey, but I wanted the spike in the star to blend more. I'm pretty happy with how it came out.
Now, just to get this little lady basted up for some quilting. How do you think I should quilt this? I thought I could follow the zig zags in the negative space - but I'm not really settled on it. Any suggestions?
P.S. The local shop where I bought this print is having a crazy 30% off sale. I got it for $5.88/yd. They are a more traditional shop, but they have a bunch of Bonnie & Camille (Bliss, Ruby, Vintage Modern (and in Flannels too), American Jane/Punctuation, Basic Grey, Kate Spain, etc selling for some crazy prices.
