APQ Quilt Along: Part 2

Wednesday, March 9, 2016


Happy Wednesday! Today I'd like to share the rest of my progress for the APQ Quilt Along. For more on the quilt along, and the early progress of my quilt, see my previous post. Quick recap: I made a quilt top for the APQ QuiltCon booth using Brenda Ratliff's Easy Addition Pattern in the Spring issue of Quilts and More.


After I made all the blocks for my quilt, I took a photo of each one individually and put them together into a little slideshow. I think I did a pretty good job mixing up the prints, with only one or two repeat combos.


This is a huge quilt! Those final row seams took a while!


Like I said, big! So much so that even with a step-ladder, I couldn't get the whole quilt top off the ground!


I really enjoyed working with all the navy, it's not a color that I use often.


Finally, here is a shot of the finished quilt in the APQ booth! I love the quilting they chose for it.


Interested in participating in the quilt along? Find more information here! You can also see photos of all the blocks individually on my Flickr.

Happy Quilting!

  2. This is a real beauty! Scrap quilts can be a little too haphazard for me but this color organization is very appealing. If only I didn't have so many projects in line.

  4. I love this, Jeni, the navy is fantastic. For a scrappy quilt it isn't too crazy at all (I've made some scrappy ones that are a bit crazy ;). Great job!

  7. Love your navy. To me it's a difficult color way to collect. Your quilt top shows what a fabulous backdrop navy makes.

  9. Awesome! Thank you so much for sharing your take on this pattern with us. You've inspired me: I'll go for a dark background and will try the "controlled scrappy" look!
