converging corners, take 2

Another converging corners quilt! Made so I could get in my Flea Market Fancy fix (I had to make a little something that combined both the original and Legacy reprint, right?!) and so that I could have a chance to practice that floral quilting pattern a bit more (you can read more about that in this post).

Last time I felt like the floral design got a bit lost since I had used it all over, so this time I quilted straight lines through the center of each block, creating a little separation for the floral design I quilted in each converging corner. I’m happy with how it turned out, and love that you can see it so well on the back!

My Converging Corners block tutorial can be found here.

The Flea Market Fancy Legacy reprint can be found in full at Hawthorne Threads, Fabricworm (at 20% off until the end of today!), and Nido.

    Great quilt Ashley, I love it! Thanks. My daughter and I “pre-odered” some Flea Market Fancy yardages several weeks ago, the money has cleared our accounts, but we still have not received the fabric! I’m starting to get worried…:(

    Goodness, I couldn’t love that quilting any more! Love it! The quilt is modern but the quilting reminds me of a ladies’ old afghan. Love the juxtaposition.

    Wow, this is another great example of inspiring “Converging Corner” quilt for us. Our new modern quilt guild is just starting on our first raffle quilt to raise funds to hire teachers to provide community education all around needle arts, quilting etc. I’ll blog about how its taking shape at our blog http://www.bvmqg.blogspot.com and you can see our inspiration so far.

    Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I used your tutorial for this as the inspiration for the Christmas quilt I finished up this week. Mine isn’t near as pretty as yours! But this is only my 3rd quilt and the first one where I’ve done true piecing of “small” fabrics. I’m pleased with the results and wanted to share them with you. Your quilts are so awesome, this probably won’t be my last FITF inspired project:)
    Blessings- Sharon
