Taffy!

Monday, May 9, 2011
Introducing Taffy!



Taffy is a mix of Lazy Angle Blocks & Traditional Blocks.
Did you know they play well together?
:-)

When Kate showed a sneak peek a while ago of the colors for hew new line I knew that I wanted to work with it.  Kate put a rainbow of colors in her new collection & even though orange is my favorite I decided to use just a few prints when designing this quilt.

Details
Fabric is Terrain by Kate Spain for Moda
Pattern - Taffy
Designed by me
Quilted by Angela Walters
Started on 4/9/11
Finished on 4/28/11
Quilt measures - 60" x 60"


Here is the back cover.
It has three size options... the Medium is shown on the pattern cover.

Here are a few detail photos... I need to take more but I already packed this quilt for market!

A peek at the binding.

The wind was crazy again... but the wind seems to know when I need to take photos of quilts. 

I love this photo even though you don't see much of the quilt design.  I guess it's just the setting in my friend's garden... it was a really nice day and I wanted to sit out & have a picnic.

Here is a peek at the bottom.

Taffy - JBQ112
This pattern will be available after market!!

If you are coming to Quilt Market you can come see Taffy in my Booth.... #2644!

Beautiful. Another great pattern, Julie!

DianeY said...

Beautiful! And love that you used purple! So many steer away from it & this is just a beautifull shade, especially with the aqua.

Alisa said...

I like the movement in this one! And I love that you used purple!

Oh good! More uses for my Lazy Angle Ruler :)

Duff said...

really spectacular! It reminds me of Storm at Sea with the way the elements interlock and form (what looks to be) curves. Perfect for a focus or fussy-cut fabrics--this is going to be a major hit!!

EG said...

I can't wait until this patter comes out! As much as I like modern quilts (and often, the simplicity that comes with them!) I've been thinking about getting back to some more traditional blocks but with modern fabric. This will be PERFECT!

bethanndodd said...

Ok, now I am feeling really
lazy...just kidding, I am just jealous of your creativeness ;-)
It's fabulous!
