High Five Quilt in Pastels
I haven't been quilting much the last couple of months, but I still have a backlog of quilts to show you from earlier in the winter. Might as well start back in with my favorite.
I used a pattern called High Five from the book Sunday Morning Quilts. I love this book as it is full of scrap quilts that are simple and not many 'traditional' blocks. I have contemplated quilting through this book and making every quilt. I actually have made a few of them already in the past.
Anyways, this quilt. So fun to put together. And the final colors are so 'me'. Actually the whole quilt is so 'me-ish', it couldn't get any closer. I'm keeping this one, that's for sure. I doubt anyone else would like it as much as I do!
My only regret is the backing choice, which is a soft cozy flannel, but definitely girly, and also I think it's a bit bright and busy and takes away from the front just a bit...oh well, I find it hard to envision how the backing is really going to mesh with the front until it is quilted and washed. Something about that final texture that makes it all look different than when it's just flat pieces of fabric.
