Sorbet Plus Quilt

These colors remind me of orange and strawberry sorbet.  Fitting, that it is the first day of Fall, and so our sorbet days are coming to an end!

And for the back, I used the Kona's in a horizontal gradient from lightest to darkest. 

 I made this  quilt because I fell in love with the coral Kona fabric, so I
picked up others colors that co-ordinated and made a plus quilt.  I'm very happy with the end result-also, this is one of the first times I straight line quilt and don't have any puckers at the cross sections!!  Not sure what I did differently, maybe because I pin basted and spray basted.

Rainbow squares quilt finish!

I have the newest edition of Quilty magazine, and when I saw the pattern inside named Sparkle, I knew I had to make it.  I made mine slightly smaller, one less row, but I love how it turned out, and I love the binding.  I think I may adjust my Library Project List-I did, after all, make the list back in January and my how project ideas can change in the blink of an eye!

I'll be sharing this tonight at our Maritime Modern Quilt Guild meeting-we are meeting at a new modern fabric shop in Halifax called Patch.  7-9 pm, Sept. 11th, and all ar
e welcome to join us.

I'm linking this up today to The Needle and Thread Network, a great place to find other Canadian bloggers who are fiber artists.

It's Friday, so that means the linky party is up over at Crazy Mom Quilts!
