I'm back....

.... with a new finished quilt!!!

Last month I bought a Charm Pack Free Spirit Fabrics from Fat Quarter Shop: a beautiful colours' palette!
I had to work on colours, a lot of colours and not only the favourite ones.
So, I decided for a simple pattern, just as a palette: wheels or spirals gave me some problems.
For the backing I used a soft fleece in a green pattern. I'm not too satisfied of the result, especially under the white fabric. I have learned a lesson. But in those days I had to work in this way!

Before binding...

....and here it is done!

It was a speedy work and perhaps not too perfect but I needed, last week, only to sew, whatever, without problems and keep my mind at work.
I chose a name for this quilt: "Color Swatches" Quilt!
It's a name a bit "pompous" for this simple work but I wanted to give it a little bit of dignity: it's always my creature!

P.S.: In the evening, my hubby Robert asked me if this quilt can will be for him: he likes CSQ just because it is  a simple quilt, not too stylish but fresh and modern.
So........"Color Swatches" Quilt has a new destination:  Robert's armchair!


  1. Beh, la vedo bene per Roberto con questi quadrati variopinti e accesi!!!So che non è facile comprare stoffe e tessuti e poi metterli quelle poche volte (anni fa) che ho comprato lana per fare dei maglioni....alla fine mi piaceva la lana nel gomitolo ma poi il risultato era diverso rispetto a quello che mi ero immaginata!!!come sono andati gli acquisti di oggi a Vicenza???

  2. Hi! Greetings from Finland! Your quilts are so fantastic! It's so nice to find other quilters all around the world! :)
