Marquise and NTT

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  I'm not going to lie, this week's party really sneaked up on me, which is surprising because I have a finish to share!

I have been burning the candle at both ends lately, but I did manage to squeeze in a few hours to finish my latest quilt, but anything other than stippling just wasn't happening.  That's okay though.  Y'all know stippling is my fave anyway!  It's hard to tell in the photo, but I quilted it with light blue thread and it adds just enough dimension to the quilt.

This chevron in shades of blue, paired with Kona Berry was perfect for the back, and I went with a Kona Navy binding to frame it.

I absolutely love how this quilt turned out.  Of course, the fabric-lover in me wants to see what it would look like in some saturated, fun prints.  That might happen when I get a little more time.

I decided to name this one Marquise, since both the blue diamonds, as well as the faceted shape in the negative space remind me of marquise shaped jewels.  I have to work on this pattern little by little, but I'm planning to get it finished as soon as I can so stay tuned!

*Edited to add- I used all Kona solids in this quilt- Candy Blue, Berry, Navy, and White.  :)

Ready to check out the awesomeness from last week?  Oh. my. gosh!  Look at this spring granny square quilt from Quilty Therapy!

Shelley at The Carpenter's Daughter Who Quilts linked up this amazing HUGE Swoon quilt, made from her dad's shirts.  There are several quilts included in this post, so definitely take a look if you missed it.

and this sweet Elephant's Parade quilt is from Celine at Esprit Patch-

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)

  2. Congrats on the finish! The quilting looks great, it really does complement the pattern.

  3. Congrats on a very pretty finish!

  4. Thanks so much for sharing my Patchwork Swoon, Kelly. Congrats on the finish of your Marquise quilt. It is very striking and should look wonderful in any color.

  5. A stunning quilt, Kelly. Thanks for hosting.

  6. Your stipple is impressive. I have literally never stippled anything because, well, I just suck at it. Yay you!

  7. Marquise, it sounds so exciting and is perfect name for this beautiful quilt! Interesting pattern! Thank you for the party! x Teje

  8. Absolutely gorgeous. Gotta admit, I was surprised to see all solids from you; but you totally nailed it. I love your limited palette; those colors really makes the bold geometric shapes of Marquise sing.

  9. Marquis is gorgeous! The color combination is spot on.

  10. oh my gosh, what a stunning quilt! Good Luck with the new pattern!

  11. I think the stipple quilting was a great choice. It gives the quilt great texture. Congrats on the finish.

  12. "Marquise" is beautiful! It looked good before but (as the quilt police might say) it's not a quilt until it's quilted. The quilting is just right. Love this finish. Thanks for sharing.
