Without a doubt, Geode is one of my favorite quilt tops in my stash. In fact, it was one that I held onto for a long time, deeming it too-precious-to-finish. But since this is the year that I aim to finish at least a few of my most precious quilt tops, I decided to pull this one out.

The pattern is by Blossom Heart Quilts, and the fabric collection I used is Imprint by Katarina Roccella for Art Gallery Fabrics. Imprint came out in 2015, before I even knew what a quilt was, so I had a hard time getting even a full set. The scarcity effect is no doubt part of why I love this quilt so much!

I incorporated just 3 designs into Geode: piano keys, swirls, and dot-to-dot designs.

Though simple, I love the high amount of contrast between these designs. I don't usually mark, but for piano keys I make an exception, because I love the evenly spaced look.

I'm so happy for finally having the guts to dig out this quilt top to quilt it. I hope it gives me the impetus I need to pull out a few more of these too-precious-to-quilt quilts.

I'm really happy with the quilts I've done so far this year, but since school's out and summer's in full swing, I will be taking a mini-break on quilting. However, I will be participating in the blog hop of Just One Charm Pack Quilts, a new book from Cheryl Brickey of Meadow Mist Designs. The blog hop starts in mid-July, so I will be back then to show the quilt I made from her book!


  1. Great as all your quilts are. You are so talented!!

  2. Oh, I can see why this is such a favorite! It is a beauty. You do need to quilt up more of your "too precious" quilts, you do such fantastic work! Enjoy your summer with the kiddos!

  3. I'm so glad you are feeling more confident to pull out quilt tops that you love so much. This turned out so beautifully! I'm excited to see what you made from Cheryl's new book. :)

  4. Beautiful, Liz!!! I love the fabrics, the pattern you chose and your quilting! You definitely have the talent to quilt ANY precious quilt!!!!

  5. Your quilting choices are spot-on for enhancing the pattern of the quilt-top - fantastic work! Are you using a long-arm or just a regular machine? It all looks so beautifully done - great skills!
