I'm calling this quilt "out of my box". It's an example of how to use slabs in a traditional lay out. I don't use black and white that often, but I love the application of it here, as sashing. (Thanks Debbie for the suggestion!) Of course the fact that it's a polka dot doesn't hurt. I love the orchid colored cornerstones. I'm hoping to get this one quilted and bound before I head to camp stitch-a-lot
. (That's next week already! Yikes!)
Not to air my clean laundry or anything (har har har), but I am celebrating because my husband installed a clothesline for me this weekend! Line dried sheets are the BEST!
Now, to answer a few questions that I've been getting repeatedly this week....
I've had a bunch of questions about the zig zag tutorial that I linked to last Wednesday. The blog is GONE, and so is the tutorial. I never published it on my own blog and I don't have the instructions written down anywhere (argh!!!) so please use the moda pdf here
. Thank you!
Also, for those of you who were looking for the mystery quilt instructions, the links are here
. (Thanks, Julie!) :)
OMG the polkas with the orchid are literally amazing - outside the box and exactly the type of thing that I love. Unique and fun all rolled into one!!!!
I LOVE this one! I'm usually not a fan of patterned sashing, but you've pulled this off without a hitch :)
And if this is what you're sharing on a Tuesday, I can't wait to see what your "finish" will be this Friday!
I don't know a soul that doesn't love polka dots! Especially black with white dots. Such a great quilt.
Wow this is great! Those slabs are fabulous and I love the sashing!
Really nice quilt, Amanda Jean - and I love the sashing! Aren't clotheslines the best for taking quilt pics? I love mine - plus I've got the old-fashioned kind that can spin around so I can always get the best light available!
What a fabulous quilt, Amanda Jean...I love it.
I love archive.org :) I think this is the missing tutorial?
That quilt top is amazing and so beautiful! I would love to make one like it now :) And thanks for the links!
Wow ,,what a fabolous quilt!!!Hugs Bambi
That looks awesome!
That looks awesome!
It IS out of your box but it is awesome. I love the clothes line. Would you believe we have covenance that dictate we cannot have one? Boo Hoo! Thankfully, I do have friends with lines I can borrow for photo purposes.
Thank you to you and Julie for the link for the mystery pattern! I really wanted to have that one on file. xo
I like your 'out of the box' quilt, I have a hard time getting out of the box myself. I also want to thank you for the link to the mystery quilt pattern.
Enjoy Camp Stitch a lot - and if clean sheets are the worst of your dirty laundry you're leaps years ahead of the rest of us :)
The sashing makes the blocks 'ping'! I Love it!
Love this!! On Mother's Day I got the house to myself and I pulled scraps for some slabs, I made several and I wasn't sure what I would do with them, this is perfect!
I sent you a copy of your 'original' post on the Zig Zag. I have made this quilt umpteen times. Thanks!
Your choice of black and white polka dots and the orchid corner stones is genius. Of course. I would expect nothing less from you. :)
Gorgeous quilt Amanda.......just loving the black and white sashing too. I am a big fan of black and white spots. Marie (email@example.com)
