The pattern is the Frame Up Quilt from the book Modern Mix by Jessica Levitt. I chose the pattern because all of the seams were straight, the lines of the quilt were more modern and the size of the finished quilt matched our bed. I will admit that wrestling the quilt into proper position for quilting took some doing and required some arm strength. It was also a bit tiring. I could do a few blocks at a time and then I would leave and come back to do a few more the next day. But the results were absolutely worth it!!!!!
This shot gives you an idea of just how large the quilt wound up being. We have a queen size sleigh bed and I always hated how purchased comforters or quilts left the box spring exposed. This quilt covers not only the mattress but the box spring as well leaving just a bit of the rails exposed on each side.
The quilt was done in batiks with 3 shades each of green, orange and brown. My husband and I chose the fabrics together at our local quilt shop. We both wanted to have rich, saturated colors on a neutral background. You can also see the quilting on these close ups of the blocks.
This was the final touch our bedroom needed after painting it a year ago. We love it!
