Interesting Info: Dorothy finished sewing this top in March and is finally reaching the finish line! She says she will be keeping this one for herself! 
Dorothy chose "Sashiko" for the quilting, which adds diagonal curves and movement to the squares and rectangles of this architectural pattern. ⤴️ ⤵️
Modern backing fabric, too!!! ⤵️
This is an awesome pattern for featuring fun prints, like these Scandinavian style fabrics Dorothy used!!! ⤵️
Great job, Dorothy!!! It is just beautiful!!! Enjoy your quilt!

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy


  1. Beautiful! I love how it really feels like you're looking out a windowpane at nature.

  2. I can see why she is keeping this one, it's a beauty! I like the quilting design, Nancy. Nice finish!

  3. That Sashiko design is a beauty. I've seen it on several quilts recently and it always catches my eye -- can look very modern or very traditional, depending on the quilt. Excellent choice for this quilt. Question: have you ever tried doing a pattern like this just inside the main part of the quilt and quilting the borders differently?

  4. How wonderful that she is keeping this beauty! And that quilting, Nancy, is fabulous!

  5. Dorothy's quilt is lovely in every way. It's so crisp and cheerful looking. Wonderful quilting as usual; the perfect compliment!

  6. Such a classic quilt (fabric) but with a modern vibe (pattern) and the lovely quilting makes it all perfect!

  7. Very pretty! This pattern seems to be "big print friendly". Your quilting makes it look ready to snuggle in!

  8. She did a lovely job! Those fabrics are fabulous. Great quilting choice!

  9. Gorgeous! And of course I’m going to feature it in this week’s Creative Compulsions.


  10. Another lovely quilt. I am quite taking by the backing fabric. The quilting you have done on this one is a great design and works really well.

  11. Beautiful. And a perfect choice of quilting to compliment the lovely fabrics and the simple effective layout. Thanks for sharing at Clever Chameleon.

  12. Wow! Another fabulous quilt! Great quilting design choice. Thanks for giving all the pertinent details. I’ve recently told myself I’m not going to buy more quilting designs for a while. I may change my mind way too fast. Nice quilt by both of you!

  13. Beautiful - and I love the Sashiko quilting!
