Union Square ~ Quilt Top

Union Square ~ Quilt Top

I spent much of the rainy day here yesterday at my sewing machine. I finished up my Union Square quilt blocks and then started playing with a layout. I mentioned earlier that I didn’t have a lot of the background fabric, so I wasn’t feeling very confident that I would come up with something I really liked.

After stitching the blocks together, I decided it needed a border to make it pop. And it turns out, I had the perfect print. The blue canvas border is from Rain Walk by Anna Graham of Noodlehead, called Ripple in Navy.

I cannot wait to show you how it looks all laid out. Sorry for the “sneak peeks”, but it’s such a great effect that I don’t want to spoil the final reveal. I plan on quilting it soon, although I just love it on the design wall right now.

    This looks like it’s going to be terrific. Isn’t it funny how having restrictions put on us sometimes really brings about the best results?

    In my opinion, you’ve a great eye for mixing the unusual rather than the staid, ho-hum in your quilts. Your blog is the first I open each day; wondering what you’ve done now! The Union Square blocks really jump out with the addition of the border.

    Good for the adventurers spirit you present. Your ventures gives me the nudge I sometimes need to step outside the box. Thank you.
