Spirit quilt is a pattern from Country Sampler. It was taught at the Country Loft by Katherine Hughes.where I took the class. This is the first time I have used a complete line of fabric for a quilt. I usually go with "scrap" or just a group of fabrics I think look go together. There is a first time for everything!
I have always felt that a single group of fabrics from a specific line of fabric did not allow for creativity. How wrong I was! I truly like this quilt! I used a very simple backing (can't see it) and overall I love it!
The lesson I learned....try new things all the time! It may surprise you with what you discover. Now, I am on to another project and I have left the use "one line of fabric" option behind. Who knows what I will find that I like the next time!!!This is what I love about quilting!!!! We discover new things all the time :)
Here is another picture of the same project! This was fun to make.....
What do you do.....I would love to hear how you select fabric, it is such a personal thing and all quilters have so many great ideas...Please share....I would love to hear from all of you!
P.S. - this quilt has just returned from being quilted. I have not put the binding on yet but it will be red. Will share when it is complete.
Have fun with whatever you do today!!!!
Remember - SMILE always,
