Ice Floes Ta Da!

This quilt has been a long time in the making but I think it has been worth it. The blocks were made by the Together circle of do.Good Stitches. I first asked for these blocks in June 2014 and it has taken until recently to have enough for a quilt. The pattern for the quilt is called the trajectory quilt designed by Meg . I've named it Ice Floes because it reminds me of icebergs floating in the sea. It has exceeded all my expectations and I love it! Shame it has to go to Siblings Together!!

The back was kindly donated by the wonderful team at Pink Castle fabrics. I should explain: I ordered the green with white spots extra wide back fabric from Pink Castle fabrics and in error they sent me the white with green spots. They kindly allowed me to keep the white/green fabric and I promised to use it for a charity quilt. I think it goes well.
I went to town on the quilting because I thought it deserved it, with roughly 1/4 inch lines echoing the chevrons.
The binding is a solid blue Kona ( I don't know which one, should label my solids when I get them!)

I'm also linking with Nicky and Leanne for Scraptastic Tuesday ( the blocks were made from scraps).

  1. Totally adore this gorgeous quilt but it is a one link link up to give everyone the same chance of winning ! Only one can count - sorry Carol!

  2. Carol I saw this on IG the other day and I thought 'oh good she's made a quilt to keep' obviously I was wrong! It looks great and a bonus with the backing!

  3. Absolutely stunning...and that backing is perfect (obviously meant to be !)

    You'll have to make another one for yourself!

  4. Haha! Label your solids indeed! wish I could see those labels staying on- I labelled mine... but they come off again!

  5. This is such a stunning quilt, Carol! You will definitely have to make another for yourself to keep :)

  6. Yes another wonderful contribution for ST. Such an unusual and striking design. Great work and lovely quilting too.

  7. Another amazing finish, and another to donate! You are so generous!

    Thanks for sharing and participating in the FAL! Visiting as a member of the official 2015 Finish-Along cheerleading squad.
