summerlove new york beauty

summerlove new york beauty frontI made this quilt for my cousin who was married this past Saturday.

It’s the New York Beauty from Peggy Martin’s Craftsy class, Quick Strip Paper Piecing.  It’s a fun class.  I whole heartedly recommend it.  I made the pinwheel quilt from this class too. I love using Craftsy because you always have the videos to refer to if you get mixed up on a technique.

The fabrics are from Pat Bravo’s Summerlove line. These colors remind me of the bride so I’m hoping she loves them too.

The back is a jumble of leftover summerlove yardage.

With all the sharp points in the piecing, I wanted to try to use the quilting to soften the look a bit.  I went with a scallopy (yes autocorrect that is the word I want to use) stitching line and randomly spaced them an inch to three inches apart in a pale blue thread.

Don’t worry, I don’t have another cousin getting married next weekend so I won’t be showing up next Monday with another wedding gift.  But the kids will be starting school mid week so I am hoping I’m back soon with lots of finished projects.

    You have very lucky cousins. I am knitting a blanket for a friend’s wedding gift, but your quilts trump my blanket. Two more weeks til back to school here. My boys thrive in the routine of school, I am looking forward.

    Wow! It’s really beautiful, I love the black center circles – they really draw your eye and make that turquoise pop!
