Quilters Planner Quilt Take Two

     Well we finally got a little sunshine and I've been able to get some photos of the Quilter's Planner quilt.  The planner quilt was designed by Cheryl Brickey of Modern Mist Designs and was planned as a year long quilt along but I skipped ahead to get it done for my Traditional Guild's quilt show.  The Quilters Planner comes with a pattern magazine and this was one of the patterns.


     
     I really pushed hard to finish the quilt in the summer so I could get it quilted by Mary Hopkins who blogs at Quilted Art from Mary Katherine Hopkins.  Mary is a member of the traditional quild I belong to.  She does a lot of quilting for our donation quilts and she does a great job.  Here's a close up of the quilting.





     There is  a lot of shade in the back yard but I still think you get an idea of the fabrics and colours.  I used Kona Silver for the background colour and Kona Regal for the darker sashing.  In the  blocks I used Libs Elliot Fabrics for the most part with a few Allison Glass and Kaffe Fasset  thrown in for interest.



      Working on this quilt was a skill builder for me and I could tell that I have gotten better at lining things up with flying geese an such.   Although I've quilted for many years many of the quilts have been made for charity and are more basic than this one.  The outside triangles for the on point setting where also very challenging and I was considering switching to a different orientation but I persevered.



      I'll be giving this quilt to Evan (my nephew) and Allie who where married in September. I'll be linking up with TGIFF which is hosted this week by Becca of Pretty Piney and I'm linking up at Brag About your Beauties which is hosted by Michelle of  From Bolt to Beauty.

  2. Your quilt is lovely Lisa. I really like the setting, you have had a learning curve but what you have achieved will make it easier to use those techniques again. I really like your colours and the quilting you had done is sympathetic with the design and enhances it beautifully. Congratulations on a wonderful finish.

  4. It’s fantastic, Lisa, and I love when we can see our skills improved when working on a more challenging quilt. Kona Regal is one of my new color crushes, too. :)

  7. I am usually not a big fan of sampler style quilts. However I really like yours, the setting of it made a difference for me. Love the darker sashing around 1/2 of the blocks making them really pop.

  10. It's a lovely finish! The Kona silver really sets off the bright colours nicely without being as impractical as white, I think.
