Little Apples Garden Fence Quilt Top

Ok, so this is my little contribution to the Garden Fence Quilt Along here.  I don't know how I did it, but I've manage to turn a feminine line of fabrics into a masculine looking quilt.  I have that tendency with everything that I do.  Oh well, that's me I guess and why I am the mother of two boys.  Never have I played with dolls as a child and as an adult I struggle to enjoy buying clothes, shoes, make-up, etc and all the things I know that I'm supposed to get excited about. Give me a tent and the great outdoors any day over a shopping mall. Or at least lock me up in my sewing sweatshop and I'll be perfectly happy:)

I struggled trying to figure out a neutral color to use with these fabrics.  White would not have looked nice against the white.  Grey clashed with the grey.  Anyway, I like the blue, it's a Kona cotton -- Nightfall to be exact.  A very fun quilt top to make in all.  I look forward to quilting it!

This has a great graphic, modern feel to it. I really admire this quilt. How are you going to quilt it?

Wow, you are simply amazing! I can't believe how many quilts you make and they are all fantastic. I love this quilt top and I agree with Jennifer it definitely has a very modern feel to it. I just love the Garden Fence block so much that I am going to make a quilt using following along at the McIntryreGirl quiltalong. Are you joining in?

Oops, got so caught up in the quilt that I didn’t read your post. I guess you whizzed right through the quiltalong!

Fabulous! Well done!

Jeannette said...

I have never considered this line to be feminine...

You chose a great solid!

Jeannette! Its awesome!! I LOVE the dark blue sashing :) Almost all that I've seen so far have white or cream sashing. This is really cool. I'm planning on using hot pink sashing with sme gray/lime green blocks for my crib bumpers. Way to go!!

Love it! My gosh you have a lot of sweet quilts. I think the darker accent makes it very modern and fresh. I have boys too so I know just what you mean about everything being masculine despite your best attempts but I'd call this quilt very beautiful.

Very striking! Great job!

Kerry said...

That looks stunning! It is sort of a tamed cuteness that makes for a great bold and pretty quilt!
