Greenery in Bloom {a finished quilt top!}

By now, you likely know that Pantone’s color of the year for 2017 is Greenery.

My friends Sarah of No Hats in the House and Rebecca of Bryan House Quilts are hosting the 2017 Pantone Quilt Challenge.  You can find all of the details here.  I haven’t participated in a Pantone Quilt Challenge yet, but had to jump in when I saw the color and the hosts 🙂

Here is my completed quilt top “Greenery in Bloom”.  It finishes at 60″ square.

I used all solids on this quilt including four shades of green.  Curves aren’t easy for me, so that was another “challenge” on this project!  When I completed my sketch and showed my husband he said “how will you do that?”  Ha!  I’m glad it looked difficult, makes him think I’ve got skills 🙂

I finished this top today as the sun was out and it finally started to warm up and feel like spring.  Perfect timing if you ask me because this quilt practically screams SPRING!

I think my favorite part of this quilt are the circles…as close to perfect as I could get!  Now, how should I quilt it?

  1. I will be honest here, but I am not normally fond of the modern quilts, BUT, I REALLY LOVE your quilt. In fact, I like it so much, I heard my husband get up from the couch in the other room as I was looking at it and called him in to check it out too. Even he likes it. GOOD JOB! Are you planning to write this up as a pattern or tutorial? I would be interested in attempting this one myself.

    • Wow do you have a pattern for your curved blocks. And can you tell me how you sewed those curved lines so well? I really like this idea

  2. I don’t think I have ever before seen a quilt based on Drunkards Path that I liked. You have made me change my mind about the block. It is beautiful and celebrating spring could not be done in a better way. Can’t wait to see how you decide to quilt it.

  3. WOW! I love your modern use of the Drunkard’s Path block! Like VickiT, I’m not usually a fan of modern quilts, but yours is just absolutely beautiful! Soooo creative! Did you hand-piece or machine-piece the curves? Also, photographing it on the brown/tan brick wall really makes the quilt top jump out at you. Good eye!
    Again, WOW!
