Design Wall Monday, 6/27

Saturday night, I finished the Not Your Grandma's Log Cabin quilt top. This was my May UFO for Judy's UFO Challenge. I'm catching up!

The quilt pattern is from the Not Your Grandma's Patchwork book from Briarwood Cottage. I chose to use nontraditional colors for my quilt.

I don't think that the dogs approve of this one. I had to coax them onto the top, but they got there eventually!

I love the checkerboard border, it really highlights the blocks. Beautiful quilt!

Kathie said...

Beautiful quilt. Looks like one of those that isn't difficult piecing but once together loooks very complicated.

Vivian said...

I like how this quilt turned out. Love the borders and the colors.

Great quilt! I don't think I've seen anything like it before! Love the scrappy border!

Since your dogs don't care for it, you should send it to me to see if my dogs will like it. :) I LOVE it! I think it's fabulous.

Miri said...

Oh I really like how this just vibrates and almost seems "out of focus". Terrific quilt.

That came out great! I love the checkerboard border.

Deanna said...

OH. MY. HECK. I love that border!

Connie said...

I really love the colors you used, beautiful quilt! When you want the dogs to get on the quilt, they won't.

Marj said...

Love your border treatment. Maybe the Pups are not happy with the location or lack of treats? I'm sure once it's quilted they will love it.

Your quilt top is beautiful. I'm not usually a purple lover but your colors are perfect. Maybe the dogs are purple lovers either :)

Vicki said...

Ohh, so pretty, love the color combo. I really like the centers, they have almost a pixelated look.

Chris said...

Great colors. I try to step out of my color comfort zone every now and again. I love the checkerboard border.

Jill, this one is great! I love the pieced border... I'll be happy to take that one off your hands if the furkids don't like it...LOL!

Great quilt - that border is the perfect finishing touch!

Beautiful purple quilt. My daughter would love it.

Kristie said...

I love that pieced border!! Seems like I get lazy when it comes to the borders and just do a solid border but I really like this!

Looks super, Jill. I love the non-traditional colors. Perfect choice.

Regina said...

you must have sprayed some repellent on it- never saw a quilt those dogs did NOT like...

Tracy said...

The dogs may not approve but I do!
Love it!

AnnieO said...

Really pretty color arrangement! Those gradations almost make the quilt look pixelated. Fun fun fun.

Jill this one is really my favorite of all the ones you have done so far. It might look great on the bed across from your lavender bathroom. If you are the kids decide you just cant live with it, I would love to help out and take if off your hands. LOL happy quilting, congrats on being in the black again

Alycia said...

I love it! Maybe the puppies aren't fans, but they will come around!!

Béa said...

Beth said...
