Bloomin’ Peaks Quilt

The Bloomin’ Peaks quilt is my 10th finish for the year.  The top was completed in April and the quilt in May which is a pretty fast finish for me.

052615 (800x1024)I stitched straight line zigzags in the green blocks with my walking foot and free motion quilted in the scrappy blocks.  Bloomin’ Peaks measures 51″ x 64″ – a nice couch sized quilt.

Since I couldn’t quite decide on my next project, I am working on three.  My leader and enders project is the cover quilt on the latest American Patchwork & Quilting magazine, Cascades by Black Cat Creation, and an appliqued Halloween quilt by Amy Bradley Designs.

What was I thinking to tackle another applique quilt?  This one is all machine applique and it is just so darn cut that I couldn’t resist.  I am half way done with the first block (a vampire) and will photograph it when completed.

    What a fun quilt. The green really helps settle all the colors.

      Thank you. I have discovered that I like scrappy blocks set with a solid – it lets the scrappy blocks shine but gives your eyes a place to rest.
