Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Design Wall Monday: 6/23/14

This weekend I put frames around some of the Beach scraps.  There are a few shell fabrics, but by now they are mainly just tan or aqua pieces, and a few whole squares of stripes and ribbons.  I was going to use aqua and khaki in the framing, but the “Azure”, I think it was, didn’t go well with the centers.  This Cream solid and tan print are definitely lower volume than the other quilts, but I like the way the centers stand out.

I also put the top and bottom together for the plaid Rail Fence for the Scrap Basket Quilt Along.


What are you working on this week?  I’m linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.
