I sewed the final two seams on my Moss Garden quilt tonight. I still have to add the borders, but the fabric I ordered won’t arrive for a couple of days.
Without the borders this measures about 80 x 80 inches. Haven’t decided on the size of the borders yet, but I’m guessing they will add at least 10 inches in overall width. So this should be a nice queen size quilt when it’s done.
These pictures feel pretty accurate in color and value to me. I hurried and took photos after we got home from our evening walk. There was just enough light left.
I’m actually liking all the fabrics I used now that’s it’s put together. There were a couple I was questioning, but now I think it all works.
Just look at these amazing fabrics! Gah! So amazing.
Someone asked me for a list of the Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics I used, so here it is, design name first, color way second:
Lady’s Purse: Red
Big Leaf: Pink
Lotus Leaf: Lime
Zig Zag: Aqua
Zig Zag: warm red
Roman Glass: Emerald
Jupiter: Green (hard to find. can use Malachite instead)
I typically buy half-yard cuts, but a few of these were thirds. Plan accordingly because you can’t get a large block and a full strip of smaller blocks for the nine patch out of one third yard width.
I have at least a dozen 9.5 inch blocks left over, plus a small pile of 3.5 inch squares. A decent amount of other scraps too. You could certainly plan more precisely and not have as much left over. Good thing I like scrappy quilts!
