SOLIDS, SCRAPS, and a FINISH

 When I started quilting, it was such a no no to put a solid in your quilt. Now, they are quite popular. I saved a picture of a little quilt to my desktop about a year ago. So simple, yet I can't forget about it. Finally I have the time to make it.  More on that later.....



Now for the finish. My Reunion top is done.  This was a strip tube quilt that Andy over at A Bright Corner had a little tutorial for. I made it in a few days because it's such a fast method. This is a quilt I would definitely do again. There are quite a few settings to play with.


Hubby held this up for me this morning.  We got more snow last night and I thought the tree was so pretty. 
Have a great day.

This is such a beautiful quilt. It doesn't look like it would be easy or quick to make. Those are the kinds of quilts I love. And it looks especially great in those fabrics.

Hi Carla,
Your quilt looks awesome, especially with the snow as the back drop. Thank you for your tip on how to place the flying geese for the quilt I am working on- it looks awesome positioned the way you suggested. Thank you for your advice - you are a great inspiration, keep it up.

Fast? It looks slow and complicated. But it's a great-looking quilt. And I love your photo-op.

That's a winner!! It looks perfect with the backdrop of snow. No solids in quilts?? I didn't know that. Guess I should have climbed out from under my rock more often!! I always just used what I liked.

Wow, Love the quilt! The borders add so much to it. It makes me want to go shopping and buy all the same fabric so I can make one and have one of my very own. :)

I just ordered a Reunion JR and this is such a perfect pattern - even have the ruler! Just a delight!

I love this pattern and the fabric especially! I never would have guessed you could make it using the strip tube method - thanks for linking to the tutorial for it! I'll have to add it to the bucket list.

Reunion, great fabric collection.
