Scrappy New England Quilt - all finished!

Waaaay back in July I shared a block tutorial for the scrappy New England block.  The wonderful women in the Imagine circle for Do. Good Stitches  made all of these lovely, scrappy blocks and I recently finished up the quilt.

I went back and forth on what to do for the sashing.  My original plan was to use green scrappy strips as the sashing, but when I got everything up on my design wall the scrappy greens were way too overpowering and the reds, oranges and yellows got lost.  I swapped the green strips out for white and used green scraps as the posts.  Much better!

I added a bit more green in the form of a scrappy green binding, which ended up being my most favorite part of the quilt.  I wish I could keep this one!

The backing is this yellow print which I found on sale at my LQS - love a great deal!

Now the quilt gets it's DGS label and it'll be boxed up and sent off to Threading Hope!

  3. So gorgeous! I love the colors you chose, it reminds me of my wedding day - white dress, first hints of fall color on the leaves. Just amazing. :D

  6. Very nice, not a color theme seen often. Why don't you keep it and send a different one? Would it matter?
