Picture finished 2014 - Part 2

The last of my 2014 finished quilt is a riot of colours.  This was a commissioned quilt for a friend who will be gifting this quilt to one of her close friend.  The theme was bright, bold and colourful with a dash of leopard print in the quilt.  I knew immediately that I wanted to use fabrics from Anna Maria Honner.

Field Study quilt

I have longed admired fabrics designed by Anna Maria Honner and was looking for a project that I could use bright and bold prints.  I am so grateful that this commissioned quilt came into my path and I have enjoyed every moment piecing this quilt together.

Flying Geese quilt

I have opted for a no binding finish which I absolutely love and hope to do more quilts in this way. Wool tassels has been added as embellishment to the quilt making it feel like a flying magic carpet.

A close up of the quilt will reveal cheerful and bright saturated colours.  I have added some flying geese in orange, red and raspberry solids, and polka dots in black with gold and bubblegum provided interesting details to the simple quilt.

Majority of the prints are from Field Study with some Pretty Potent and Loulouthi prints mingled among it.

The quilt is kept secured between layers by hand-stitched tiny X's at regular intervals.

    1. Hi Elizabeth

      Thank you for requesting about this pattern. I would have loved to release a pattern on it (it'll be my first) however due to time constraint from work and university, I will not have the time to write out a workable pattern.

      Kind regards,
      Jacqueline
