My Cuzco Garden Fence quilt top has a new name – thanks to Taisia of Piecing Light. It’s now named Peacocks in the Garden – thanks Taisia! Perfect name for it. :)
Oh and yes, it’s now a quilt top, not just blocks! Progress! And of course there have to be photos as proof. So here you go!
Okay so that doesn’t really show off the quilt top, but it does show the pretty colours! I’m all about the pretty in my quilts.
Here we go! Peacocks in the Garden – still a work in progress, but oh how i”m loving how it’s coming together!
I have to say, I didn’t picture quite how lovely it would be when I was just looking at a stack of blocks. Pretty though they are.
Oh and I have to share this little picture. It should be titled “This is why you need to square up your blocks”.
That’s right – that’s all the scraps leftover after I trimmed my blocks back to lovely 10” squares. I don’t know about you but when I’m finished sewing up my blocks, I’m so tempted to just sew them together. Squaring up is soooo boring. So this pic is a little visual reminder to myself why that squaring up is necessary. That’s a lot of excess cut off! But worth it – as it makes sewing the blocks together and lining them up so much easier.
So – still to go. Quilting. I’m thinking straight line quilting echoing the white sashing. Simple, and easy. I’m still not game to try my FMQ skills on an entire quilt top. And I need to decide on a backing and binding. Or do I skip the binding all together? Decisions decisions!
But while I decide, I’m just going to enjoy the pretty. This is what Cuzco plus Bella Solids look like as a Garden Fence quilt. Definitely pretty.
Linking up on a Monday with:
