Santa Ana ~ A Finished Quilt and Pattern


Santa Ana Quilt : Pattern Available at Fresh Lemons Quilts

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.

I played a little with the neutrals for my background, using a mix of FreeSpirit Designer solids in Winter White and Pearl in my blocks and sashing.  I love how it gives the quilt a fresh feel.

The Santa Ana quilt measures 51″ x 64″.  I quilted it using a meandering free motion pattern with my BERNINA BSR foot.

    What a great quilt! I never think about using black, but I agree with you about its punch. And your new website looks so crisp and clean. Love your photo, too!
