Potent Ansonia Quilt





I used a fat eighth bundle each of Ansonia by Denyse Schmidt and Pretty Potent by Anna Maria Horner to make this Scrappy Trip Around the World.

I love how it's saturated with color, but in a rich almost vintage looking way.  (I think putting these two designer's fabrics together would likely always have this effect!)

I'm also amazed how I've ended up making so many quilts with this pattern.  I think at least half of it is that I like how they're constructed.  Using 2.5" x 22" strips is just a convenient size.  I can pull a fews fabrics off my shelf, cut a 2.5" strip off of each one, and I'm ready to sew!

  2. I'm ready to start a color-saturated quilt as well. I've done the nautical and pastel and more subtle-colored quilts and was ready to use some deep colors. AMH was my designer of choice. I was surprised that it was a bit difficult to find the hues I wanted to use.

  6. So pretty, I love how it's the tones of the prints not the exact same prints that create the pattern and movement in the design.

  9. Love all the rich colour! I haven't tried a scrappy trip quilt yet ... might be a good excuse to use up a jelly roll I've been hoarding :)
