14 arcadia lattice quilt.

9.22.2010

It's finished!  Can we talk for a second about how well this one matches my living room?
The back looks pretty nice in here too.
I quilted it with diagonal lines, it was pretty fun to quilt and very fast.
Made with strips from an Arcadia honeybun, Kona Ash, and Kona Snow for the back.  Bound in Kona Medium Gray.
This one was donated to a silent auction for the American Heart Association.  Would it be bad if I bid on it myself?  It was made to live in this room!
I'm back after an exhausting week of work and a 21 mile bike ride around Lake Geneva this past weekend (partially in the pouring rain and seriously ALL UPHILL, I swear!).  I spent most of the day in bed on Sunday and have had no desire to do anything productive the last few nights.  I'm still pretty tired but hopefully after this coming weekend I'll be all caught up on my sleep and back to regular sewing and blogging.

  1. What a beautiful quilt. And, I love the fabric choice! I picked up a jellyroll with all of these fabrics included for my wedding guestbook quilt. I can't wait to get everyone to sign it and start sewing!

  2. Wow, that quilt is amazing! I really love how your quilts look so modern and sophisticated.

    LOL about wanting to bid on it for yourself- I guess you would have to weigh how much time you spent making it vs. how much the winning bid would have to be. If your time is worth more, than go for it!

  6. We were part of a bike-a-thon this past weekend in the rain (too!) and I'm convinced no matter what the course, it will always seems uphill. *grin*

  8. It is very lovely! And it does match your room nicely . . . if you bid on it yourself does it count as a double charity donation? :)

  9. So wonderful. I love the pattern. It just looks crisp and clean. Did you come up with it yourself or follow someones pattern? You did a great job I can understand wanting to keep it.

  10. Truly lovely. The colors almost look metallic/shiny next to the Kona Snow. The whole thing glows. Congratulations!
