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!
