Posy 16 Patch

I had cut the squares for this quilt many moons ago from a big stack of layer cakes I'd bought on ebay.
The inspiration for this quilt came from Lauren at Charlotte's gRACE for a Cure 
She was totally ok with me copying her sweet quilt :)


I won't carry on and explain why these pictures are less than stellar. Just trust me when I say, the struggle was real. This fabric is also really tough to photograph! I ended up using my iphone camera. The last quilt I made with Posy was the same way. The shades want to show so much darker than they truly are. I'm going to try again when I go to town. I just really wanted to get this post up since it's been done quite a few days now!

It's simply twenty 16 patch blocks made up of 2.5 inch squares. Sashing is 2.5 inch strips of Bella white 98



For the back I had found my favorite print from the line at Stitch Sanctuary and they also had a print I used for the binding and filling in the backing. I used Aurifil 2435 to attach the binding and it matched perfectly.






It finished at 40.5 x 50.5 before washing. I managed to get one shot that shows the true colors, and of course it had to be the one of a quilt roll!


I love this sweet little quilt, it reminds me of Easter. I do miss that Aneela Hoey is no longer with Moda, boo!

  26. Oh, yes, it is a sweet quilt. I love how the backing has the same vibe as the front. And that strip of flowery fabric is just delightful. Isn't it amazing how quilts sometimes photograph differently than we see them?

  27. Wonderful quilt, so scrappy! The colors, though you had trouble capturing them, are so wonderful. I'm sure when you get back you'll find the trick of how to capture them accurately. That's happened to me before too. Funny how some colors just don't want to appear on camera!

  28. Sweet quilt, and I love the girl reading in several of the squares. Some colour combinations are very hard to get right in photographs, I find it particularly hard when some areas are white or nearly white; the colours against it come up all wrong...
