I finished a quilt for a new little pal, Peter Arthur, who was born just a few weeks ago. He belongs to my good friends Alison and Tommy. They live in Maryland, so I haven’t had an opportunity to meet him yet, but I wanted to send him a little something to welcome him to the world!
I couldn’t help but make another zig-zag quilt especially since Alison is into chevrons. And because Alison and I share a deep love for Halloween, I decided to make a dark and stormy Halloween-style quilt with some greys, purples, aquas, and smoky teals to compliment some of the print fabrics I chose from the Tula Nightshade and Ghastlies lines.
Here are some close-ups of some of the prints:
I backed the quilt with ash Kona cotton and made a strip in the middle out of some leftover pieces I trimmed off of the quilt top and some solid strips. This was just an experiment at first to see if I could make use of scraps, but I was really happy with how it turned out and wanted to incorporate it into the backing!
I was so happy to wrap this quilt up and send it on its way today. I hope I have the opportunity to meet Mr. Peter very soon!
And a quick garden update…check out this purple carrot!
And these delicious golden beets from the garden that I ate for dinner the other night!
Summer is good.
