Finish It Up Friday  ~ Blueberry Park

I’m so excited to share this finish with you! I pieced this top last winter in Arizona from a layer cake of Blueberry Park by Karen Lewis. It is a beautiful line of fabric. I mentioned earlier that I added a bit of a twist to the quilting. This is what it looked like when I shared with you last:


I quilted this using my pattern boards. When I finished, I removed the quilt from the frame, turned it 90 degrees, and reloaded it. Then I quilted it again using the pattern boards to achieve this wonky grid.



I loved every this effect! Granted, it takes a while as I essentially quilted the whole thing twice. But it definitely gave the crisp and funky look I was going for.

Here is the back.

Have a wonderful day!

    YES! It is PERFECTION! I loved the fabric line, and the design layout; but the quilting takes it over the top. Have a wonderful time with your family, and congratulations to the newlyweds.

  18. Totally and completely wonderful — SO well worth the extra time and thread to quilt it the second time in the alternate direction!!!

  19. Aaahh, I melted on the inside and drooled all over my computer screen when I saw the texture you achieved with your quilting! It’s *wonderful*!!! Great job Katy! 🙂

    Hi Katy – I love, love, LOVE this quilt and especially the quilting. (By the way, you’ve got a small typo: I loved every this effect!) So day I might get brave enough to try this quilting technique. ~smile~

  25. lois92346 says:

    Man, oh man, oh man!!! I love it!! Great job, Katy!

  26. janicekholton says:

    Oh this wavy grid looks truly amazing! So what is a pattern board?

  27. Heide says:

    Beautiful finish, love the quilting!

  28. This looks wonderful! St first I thought you had broken up the vertical quilting but the lines angling to the right almost disappear so it looks like the horizontal rows aren’t crossed. You did a lovely job on picking out that curved line as grid.

  29. Sandra B says:

    This one is over the top, Katy!! That extra time spent adding the additional quilting was well worth it…I think the quilt would have been great without the extra quilting, but this ones shows that you went the extra mile to make it really special…And I love the binding and backing for it too. Well done!! Another example of how simple shapes can result in an amazing quilt!

  30. Ariane says:
