I could not be happier with the way this quilt turned out. I love it so much and can't wait to share the pattern! I even started working out the math last night, before the quilt was finished!
I used the rest of my Amy Butler fabric on the backing. Wide, WOF stripes are great for using up leftover fabric, and I think it's even better when the widths are varied.
I used the same teal binding that I used on my Jeweled quilt, because I think it works so well with these fabrics. Amy Butler fabrics are so rich in color that I have had trouble finding just the right binding in the past.
I'm working like mad to get this pattern finished, so be on the lookout! I'm calling both the quilt and the upcoming pattern Courtyard Tiles, and I hope to have it finished this weekend!
Now, it's time to announce the winners from the three giveaways! A whopping 229 commenters entered the giveaways- WOW!
