Verdant - A Finished Quilt

Verdant - A Finished Quilt

When I first saw Leah Duncan's collection Meadow I really had to have some.  Each print is really beautiful and unique.  And the colors are just amazing. I bought a fat quarter bundle of the Picnic by the Hills colorway, but  I wanted to make a decently sized lap quilt so I added some coordinating prints and solids.

I had a really difficult time deciding what to do with the fabrics but I have been wanting to try diamonds so I gave them a go.

My husband was kind enough to help me take a photo in the back yard.  It's a good thing you can't see his face because he wasn't smiling, ha ha.  We are continuing to experience very hot, strong Santa Ana winds and spending outside is not very pleasant.

For the backing I used my favorite Meadow print; normally I'm not a huge fan of green but the greens in this collection are gorgeous. The binding is an Art Gallery solid, I think it's called Emerald.

I quilted on the side of each seam and then down the center of the diagonals.  The combination of the soft Art Gallery fabrics with the crosshatched quilting makes this quilt incredibly soft.

The finished size of the quilt is 65" x 75" which is pretty much my favorite size for a lap quilt.  While I didn't have a plan for this quilt when I started it, I think it will be making its home in my living room.
