It’s finished. I was never able to see the finished product, as it was mailed straight from my quilter Lori (email@example.com) to my dear friend Kara for her wedding. There’s no way I would have quilted this in time and in this manner by myself.
Kara moved into my old house when she was three, our family built a house next door. Many days of our youth were spent in the yards and woods together. Sadly we can’t make it to her wedding in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
So here’s the line up for each rectangle: Kona solid rectangles surrounded by improv print piecing, linen, Kona again in a color followed by natural Kona. Added one print and then linen again. The final layer wraps them all in natural Kona.
It will lay on the bed the other direction, more hopscotch style and the binding is Cake Rock Beach dots in the green. A little hard to see in the picture. More photos of that and the back to come.
One more shall we?
I am so thrilled with how it turned out.
Oh it is so so so beautiful!! So unique and wonderful. Really – a truly amazing quilt…
Wow – it’s absolutely gorgeous! I love the blocks and all the white!!
What a work of art!!! Love the colors and especially the machine quilting -really gives it that modern feel!
So very pretty! I love all things blue and green. So fresh and calming. I love the way Lori quilted all the rectangles so they “pop”. Kara and her husband will cuddle under this for years to come – what a wonderful gift!
It is fabulous! I love it.
It is gorgeous ….. love the colours
I believe your friend will be thrilled to say the least. It is a beautiful quilt.
Very pretty quilt. It is like a breath of fresh air. 😀
Wow, that is freaking AWESOME !!!!!!
We love it and are also thrilled with how it turned out! I can’t say how much it means to us to have this beautiful quilt crafted by an old, dear friend be part of our wedding celebration!
We will have the quilt on site for our wedding weekend, displayed at both the rehearsal and reception. Guest will be asked to take their picture using it as a backdrop. Photos will be printed on site so guests can paste their portrait onto a page in our guestbook, combined with their signature/comments/wisdom.
Thank you Katie!!!!!!
More photos to come.

I love the quilting in the borders. Interesting that the quilting doesn’t extend into that other white. Such a unique effect.

thanks for both this beautiful design, and your colorway quilt, as they are both my inspirations this month! I’m making my very chic, non-quilty mom a table runner using this gorgeous rectangle design, and can’t wait to start the other quilt with the scraps of my projects from 2009. it’s people like you who make me want to keep quilting! thanks!
Love the colour balance, so fresh it pops right off the screen. Also appreciate how it’s so contemporary. What a special, special gift from the heart and hand.
that is such a beautiful quilt Katie. And to now know who it went to…what a cool feeling.
This is one of my favorite quilts ever made.
Love this. Your friend will be thrilled.
Stunning. I love it. What a wonderful gift.
Simply beautiful…and beautifully simple. I love it. Katie, your friends will be so happy to have it on their bed and you are very generous to have given so much of yourself. If you can’t be there in the flesh, you will be there in spirit.
I LOVE this. I don’t often use patterns, but I’d happily buy one for this. Does it/will it exist?
