Peach


Peach is one color that I've never liked.  And I thought I never would.  Well, I still don't love it.  But I DO love the colors in this quilt!

It started out as this block.  I had the background fabric (Essex Linen in Natural), the backing (Weekends by Erin McMorris), and the binding (Kona Mango), all stacked together for months.



I think the natural color and texture of this linen is what I like most.  And that backing fabric was one of those that I would have NEVER picked up, but it was on a super sale somewhere, so I bought a yard.  And the entire quilt was inspired by that piece!

I'll show you some more of it once I get a chance.  Seems like getting photos of these quilts takes as much time and effort as actually finishing them!

  1. I agree with you as I also really don't like peach (just the color, lover the fruit) but this quilt looks fantastic and very contemporary which I really like.

  8. The quilt is lovely.

    I chuckled at the comment on time-consuming photos because I totally agree. Writing a blog post is really quick, adding photos takes so much longer (not counting taking the photos, editing the photos, storing the photos, etc)!

  9. I LOVE this quilt. Also I noticed your label that says Blue Elephant Stitches. I've been envisioning something similar for my quilts and was wondering where you got them made/how you made it?
