Show Your Stripes Blog Hop ~ My Day



Here is My Showing My Stripes Quilt! 
My quilt measures 64" square to the outside curves 
of my scalloped binding. 
The blocks, which are my version of the traditional Grandmother's Fan Block,
measure 12.5" unfinished.

When I joined the

I already pulled the small fat quarter bundle from my stash for another project
and realized the stripe fabric was perfect for a quilt that features stripes.


I love this quilt and have enjoyed every part of the making ...





My stripe fabric and color palette came from this gift fat quarter bundle.
I chose to use this stripe for both the binding and in the blocks.


I like the dramatic contrast with the soft florals and pastels.
When I was cutting fan blades for fat quarters and scraps,
I knew I wanted to feature the stripe in the center ... 


... and in the binding.

I had to do some searching to find a yard of the stripe fabric online
 to have enough for my binding.  This stripe fabric is 

 Shortcake Fabric by Heidi Staples of Fabric Mutt

it was the perfect finishing fabric for my scrappy pink, white and cream fabrics. 


It took my finished quilt outside to catch a few photos in natural light.
It will be snowing again here soon. 


I love the combination or creams and white and pinks and reds.


I love the dramatic play between the strip and the soft florals. 


I loved the curve so much I decided early on to make a scalloped binding.


I will be posting a mini tutorial on how I cut and sewed the binding soon.


I love everything about this quilt and have enjoyed sharing it with you today.

Please visit all the lovely stripers of the day,

the projects are all amazing and sew inspiring and creative!

I really like the edge, though I wouldn't like to do the binding - but then I don't like any binding! The stripes really make the circles look like they are moving.

Lovely quilt Pat. I love the colors and the scallop edges. You did a fantastic job!

Annie said...

Such a pretty quilt! The colors are lovely. I like the mix of cream and white and pink and red also. The stripes in the center block give the impression that it is spinning. The scalloped edge is a perfect edge finish for the fans. I always love a stripe binding too. The fabrics and your version make it a more modern looking fan quilt. The quilting is lovely. Quilty Kitty approves. I’m sure he’ll share it with you ...as long as all you want is a small section of the edge. The center is his!

Carol said...
