Country Blues

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Turning Twenty Link to website or photo connectingthreads.com What are you most proud of? I decided to put a red binding for a color pop! This was given to my husband for our 18th wedding anniversary. He loves it. Well, he loves me and likes the quilt.....lol What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you have lots of color contrasts. It doesn't work if your fabrics are not varied in light and dark shades. Have a fun binding planned to give it a bit of a flare.

What you will need

  • Blues and creams fabric from Connecting Threads.com. This is a turning twenty pattern. Red binding and red cap corners for a color pop. This was machine quilted by a friend using a long arm and a linear pattern of squares and line which was very effective.

I love this quilt, especially the color combos... could you tell me which turning 20 book you got this pattern from? Ive looked on line and cant figure it out. there are many turning 20 books out there now and dont want to buy all of them to find it
linpiration answered:
It was a little book with only a few patterns. It was more of a pamphlet. I will look in my box the next time I go to the storage and get the book. I am going to sell off all my books and will let you know when if you are interested. Thansk!
