menagerie

I have a finished quilt to show you today! It’s actually been finished for quite a long time, but has not been posted for lack of decent photos. These aren’t exactly the photos I wanted, but February in Vermont doesn’t provide a ton of options. My favorite barn as backdrop then.

You may remember this one from last Fall – I made the first out of Heather Ross’s Kinder fabrics, and then immediately wanted to see this design again out of Rifle Paper’s Menagerie. I love both of them, but right now while it’s still cold and wintery, I’m all about the colors of this collection.

I made the backing out of primarily the aqua floral from this line, along with little scraps from the front.

There’s something kind of satisfying about using up teeny little triangle scraps on the backing!

For quilting, I once again turned to Jacquie’s wonderful book, Walk. I can’t remember now which design I selected, but I do know that somewhere along the line I got off track, so what I ended up with isn’t exactly what I intended. I love it though, and love that it’s straight line quilting without just being straight lines.

I almost can’t wait to baste another quilt so that I can select another of her fun quilting designs. Almost.
