Several months ago I revealed the Waterfall Runner which I mentioned used cut-off corners from a different quilt. Well, I finally quilted the original quilt from which the pieces of the runner came from.

The pattern is called Peak designed by Modern Handcraft, and for the fabric I used an ombre bundle from Craftsy that uses blues, greens, and yellows. While I love blues and greens together, the yellow is what really adds sparkle to this quilt.

I knew what I wanted to do with this quilt as soon as I loaded it on the frame, and I pretty much stuck to my plan. I knew that I wanted to use a variety of linear designs in the rectangular strips, and I threw almost everything I knew on there. When it comes to quilting designs, I always believe more is more. But I also quilted a lot of strips with just straight lines to give the eye a place to rest.

In the white triangles, I tied everything together with the same design: a tight swirl. These are my favorite swirls right now to do, as not only are they elegant looking, but they're very quick to do.

Even though it's no longer summer, this quilt is like a slice of summer to me!

  1. This is absolutely gorgeous! You are definitely right about the yellow -- it is a beautiful pop of color amongst the rest of the fabrics! :D

  2. Hi Liz! You never fail to disappoint. Those ombre fabrics just make that quilt glow! Your quilting is always just right and gorgeous. I wonder, do you usually know right away how you're going to quilt something? I envy those who just "know".

  3. The pops of yellow really do add a nice sparkle to the quilt. The quilting in the white triangles is a lovely unifying element. What a great finish!

  4. I needed to see this quilt today. All that yummy quilt texture, just makes me smile! Love the pop of the yellow/mustard fabrics <3

  5. Using a different motif in each strip really speaks to me! This quilt is absolutely lovely!

  9. I agree with all the other commenters. You're quilt is so stunning. Love the quilting - I agree with your reasons and love the rest spots amongst the awesome variety as well as the anchor triangles. Gosh I miss my long arm (health) when I look at lovely quilting like this.
