A quilt finish that I forgot to post

I finally finished the binding on this quilt and completely forgot to blog about it. The pattern is called Vivid Grid, and was from the Spring edition of 2017 Quilts and More Magazine. 
I now have a massive pile of quilts to donate and it ended up in the pile without being photographed first.  I think I have said before that this block is much loved by me a) uses 2.5" strips and squares b) easy pattern to follow c) makes a decent size bloc and c) looks good no matter what colourway you use.
This is a variation on the original pattern though, as I added sashing and red cornerstones, so the plus signs stand out more.  I dont like excessive background fabric normally, but that is my own fault as I normally use white.  I am super pleased with this bright blue and wish I had brought more. 
The weather was ridiculously warm for a short spell August, to the point I had to wear shorts while I was gardening.  So adding a few garden photos to my post which has been sitting in draft mode for more than a month, apologies, full time work and family (plus domestic drudge, gardening and a bit of sewing) have been taking priority.
Happy quilting Sue.


  1. Your garden photos look good, and with work etc I am amazed how much sewing you do, and finish as well. I also love that block, and can see a good use for the drawers full of 2 1/2" strips that I have.

  2. That is really a very pretty quilt, and I like the sashings and red cornerstones too! Wish my flowerbeds looked as pretty as yours! ---"Love"

  3. The quilt looks great, and so do the flowers!

  4. lovely quilt and your garden has some gorgeous flowers in it.....
