My best days are the ones where I have a bit of time to sit and work with beautiful fabrics. Over the last month, I was lucky enough to create a new quilt with Corinne Haig’s new fabric line for FreeSpirit Fabrics, Artichoke Garden. Last week, I shared some photos of this happy fabric line, as well as a sneak peek of the blocks I had been stitching.
I’m thrilled to be sharing the finished quilt with you today. I named this one Santa Ana (and yes, there is a pattern available!) Corinne mentioned when designing this fabric line, she was inspired by her California roots. Well, I also happen to have California roots! I was born in Santa Ana, and I thought that would be a great name for this quilt and pattern.
These colors and blocks were so cheerful up on my design wall. I especially love the punch of black.
I find it hard to resist any fabric with blue – it’s my favorite color after all – and this artichoke print that I used on the back was no exception.
The Santa Ana quilt measures 51″ x 64″. I quilted it using a meandering free motion pattern with my BERNINA BSR foot.
