Ghost Blossoms

It's been an absolutely crazy year, hasn't it? I knew that this quilt would be my last finish of the year, and I thought ... what should I pick? I have a wide variety of choices, from more muted palettes to explosions of rainbows. But I think a bright rainbow is what hits the spot for this time of the year.

Ghost Blossoms is designed by Tula Pink from the book Quilt with Tula and Angela, and for the fabrics I chose 16 prints from my Alison Glass stash. They don't all belong to the same line so there's a level of scrappiness, but it's still all Alison Glass so the color has a coherence. I don't know what is it about Alison Glass rainbows, but they have such a glow to them!

I don't like to obscure prints with a lot of heavy quilting, so I quilted dot-to-dot geometric designs in the blossoms.

The white background, however, is calling for a lot of elegant swirls!

But I didn't want to do that for every space, so every other row, I quilted a slightly different design in the background ghost blossom.

I think this quilt top is quite old. I'm not even sure when I made it, but it was at least 3 years ago. I'm sure glad I pulled it out for the final finish of the year. I'm totally in love with this quilt, and this is a great quilt to close out this insane year!


  1. Another beautiful finish, Liz, and a perfect way to wrap up your quilts for 2020!

  2. Wow that is gorgeous! The quilting is wonderful

  3. I love a rainbow quilt and this is no exception. I think AG's fabrics sparkle because she often does the deeper values of the colors in a jewel tone favorite!

  4. Another beauty! I love the alternate motif to the swirls. They sort of look like curly brackets :)

  5. This turned out really gorgeous! Would it be ok if I shared a photo in my upcoming newsletter? I'd link back here for credit...

  6. Really love the quilt and the quilting if stunning.
