All That Jazz Finish

 For the past few years, I have really been focusing on my scraps to make all of my quilts.

When  a friend shared some beautiful leftover prints with me, I went to my stash and pulled some coordinating fabrics to make myself a quilt.  

I decided to use my All That Jazz pattern - I really didn't want to cut these fabrics up into tiny pieces.  I love the bold geometric feel this pattern has.

I am really smitten with the orchid and gold color combination with the berry colors.  I hope to remodel my living room one of these years and this color scheme is in the running.

On the back of this quilt you will find one of the handdrawn wide backings I shared from Connecting Threads.  The purple version was perfect for this quilt.

I really enjoyed making this quilt!  It was nice to work with big pieces for a change (versus the small scrappy bits I am always digging through).  In fact, I have pulled another stack of fabric from my stash that I will share soon for another quilt.  I am just waiting for a pattern design to jump out at me.

When I was outside photographing my quilt, I couldn't help but notice my tree lilies - they smell so amazing right now.  Their scent is really bringing in the pollinators right now.  All of my lavender, solidago and sedums are abuzz with fascinating insects.

Just my small little plot of land reminds me continually of how amazing nature is. 
We really must protect this planet more.... 

Hope you are able to get out and enjoy what makes you happy this weekend!

  1. excellent choice for those bold prints...

  2. I love that quilt! Your friend should be very happy with your use of her fabrics. I love anything that brings in bees & other pollinators. I too have some flowers that seem especially tasty to them.

  3. Your tree lilies look amazing, and I'm so glad the pollinators are happily working in your yard. They bring me joy when I see them busily at work. Speaking of joy, that's a joyful quilt finish!

  4. What a fantastic quilt! The fabrics are so pretty together, and your pattern choice features the prints beautifully!

  5. We've had some much needed rain the last few weeks, so I was out weeding and pulling out spent larkspur and the bumble bees were having a merry time in the lavender. You made good use of your friends leftovers. That's a very lively pattern with lots of movement.

  6. I love this quilt, great use of bold fabrics. Your lilies are so pretty and I love the birdhouse too!

  7. Congrats on a lovely quilt finish, Cynthia. Bonus points for using scraps!!

  8. That's a beautiful quilt, Cyndy! I love the colors and that great design. I've never heard of tree lilies before - I'm guessing they don't grow in dry Colorado. They're beautiful, too!

  9. What a glorious quilt, Cynthia. I love the colors that you are using. Have a fabulous weekend.

  10. Ohhh such a lovely finish!! and its for you!! I love it!!!

  11. Stunning pattern using these colours, great finish.
