LuLu Lattice and NTT

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all!  Wow, it has been an exciting but busy week for me around here, and that includes finishing up my latest quilt, made with the LuLu Lane collection by Corey Yoder.

The colors in this quilt are so pretty.  They're muted but still feel fresh, and the shot of aqua helps it feel springy to me.  Since I'm a sucker for alliteration, I am calling this one LuLu Lattice.

On the backing, I used up all of the scraps, and paired it with an apple green polkadot, which really plays up the more vibrant tones in the collection, and the Kona Pool binding is such a happy frame for these fabrics.

This quilt is a gift, and I know it's going to make the recipient very happy!  In a week with posts for April CMM blocks as well as the Stash Statement blog tour kickoff and giveaway, last week's party seems like it was a long time ago (of course, it wasn't)!  Nevertheless, it was filled with awesome projects, and I definitely want to highlight a few.

Just look at this Postcards from Sweden quilt by Something Rosemade.  The colors are a little deeper than the ones I usually see, and it is just beautiful!

And oh my goodness!  Look at this hexie quilt top by Den syende himmel.  It contains 16,762 hexies!  By the way, she is Norwegian, but her blog is written in English too.

And this queen size quilt by Julie at Pink Doxies, made with Amy Butler's Hapi collection is gorgeous, and the layout is unique!

Wow!!  What awesome inspiration!  I can't wait to see what you share this week.

1. You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post (not to your home page!) to make it easier for others.
3. Please remember to spread the word and post my button or a text link.  
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!
5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!

*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!  :)

  6. Kelly, the lattice colors just pop so nicely. I also appreciate how you allowed some to fade out. It's such a nice technique, but not often done. Also, I graciously thank you so much for featuring my Hapi quilt. The center block placement was one I had seen from decades past, and worked so well for my orphaned blocks.

  7. Kona Pool was a great colour for the binding. Well done.


Thanks so much for your comment and for visiting! I read and appreciate every single comment, and I reply to each one as soon as I can. If you don't hear back from me, you might be a no-reply blogger. :)
