WIP Wednesday: Avant Garden 2

I finally decided on a sashing fabric for my Avant Garden part 2!  Yay for helpful quilty friends!

Although this was not my original plan, (I planned to use a cream rather than a white) I am very pleased with how it turned out!

And believe it or not, even though this is the second quilt I've made from this fat quarter bundle, I still had leftovers.  To my friends this will not be a surprise because they know that I save every little piece.  Yesterday I played around with my leftovers (including 4 whole fat quarters) and started to piece a backing together. The cream is leftover from trimming another quilt backing.  All I need now is a little more cream - 20 inches for the left side and 8 inches on the top and bottom and I have a back!  I just love a pieced backing - it makes the back as fun as the front.

This is all that remains of the fat quarter bundle.  Not bad.  These sweet little nuggets will be going into my scrap bin.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Great pattern! It looks like garden flowers! I enjoy your pieced back, too, and so fun to use up leftovers!

  3. Delightful! What a colourful quilt - gorgeous work :)

  4. Love your quilt. I finished a quilt recently using the same fabric collection. Aren't they fun fabrics.

  5. Oh how I have admired this collection! I love your pattern, it is a great showcase for the beautiful fabrics! And a form similar to one I have been on a bit of a kick with myself, using HSTs. What a beautiful quilt!!
