Happy Wednesday everyone!

 

The gorgeous weather continues here!  Such a treat!

 

When I make a quilt I always photograph it before I send it off to the magazine.   However, doing commission work at least one season ahead means the weather and season at time of photographing doesn’t match the theme of the quilt!

Take for example my Ebb and Flow quilt!  This is the photograph I took of it on completion in April.  Drab and dreary right?

 

 

And ironic too because the fabrics used in this quilt are called ‘Blue Sky’ by Laundry Basket Quilts (background is Linen Texture, both by Makower). Oh how I wish there were blue skies when I photographed this quilt!

I went for simple mitred piecing in columns to give a contemporary twist to these classic prints.

I knew there had to be organic wavy quilting vertically through the columns to enhance the ‘ebb and flow’ movement in the quilt. Aurifil 50wt is my ‘go to’ thread for quilting.

So there you have my blue sky Ebb and Flow summer quilt, fulfilling the Editor’s brief of soft summer blues with an organic design. The pattern is in the July issue of Popular Patchwork, out now.

 

May the wonderful weather continue!
