High Tea Quilt Top

26 10 2014

I can finally share with you guys the completed High Tea Quit top, made from a pattern by Adrianne of On the Windy Side. Check out the post she’s written to mark the pattern’s release – she’s shared several different versions of this quit. The pattern is available on Craftsy and in Adrianne’s Etsy shop.

High Tea Quilt Top

This quilt top would be a great weekend project – even at the king-sized version. This is a great stash buster, and really lends itself to chain piecing.

I deliberately went for a restrained color palette, because I wanted to use up some of the oldest fabrics in my stash. I also wanted to use up some of the solids I have in my stash.

I’m very pleased with how it turned out, though I kept fussing over prints being too concentrated. I had to remind myself that I only pulled twelve prints – repetition was inevitable.

Now I’m looking forward to quilting it, and getting the quilt onto my bed. Hubby really likes the color palette, and is looking forward to another of my quilts to curl up in. I call that a win.
