Finished: January Quilt

Everyone needs a January Quilt.
Or a February quilt, since there’s only 11 days left of January.

It also helps when there is a very bright Heather Bailey Pop Garden print on the back, and if the weather is sunny and warm enough to be outside without a coat.

    First time visiting you blog…and WOW….i was curious at first what line of fabric you used, but then i read "a little of everything", which is awesome.

    Absolutely stunning. I've been commissioned to do a quilt of half triangles so this is great inspiration :)

    Okay.. I love all of your stuff! This quilt is awesome! It's so fun and cheery! I'm looking at your tutorial list and want to make everything! I might try this design or the hourglass design as a scrap quilt.

    I am also inspired and loving your bright fun January quilt! I absolutely adore the Heather Bailey on the back – soo much fun! Bright, Cheery and Alive for a cold dark January – perfect! Thanks for sharing. :)

    The backing is perfect.

  21. Beth January 22, 2010 at 8:51 pm #

    Lovely! I am working on one now that is similar with "windmills" similar to V and Co's. How did you quilt it? Stippling? I can't see it closely enough! Did you have any trouble where your points come together?

  25. Goddess in Progress January 22, 2010 at 9:13 pm #

    Lovely! Did you have any particular method to your madness when pairing the blocks to make the HSTs, or is it all random?

    Oh how beautiful! It reminds me of warmth and summertime! So nice!

  29. Kristin January 22, 2010 at 9:40 pm #

    Just lovely! Do you choose colors for a quilt like this or just start grabbing fabric randomly? It all works so well together.

    I think you should stop making quilts – seriously, every time you post a new one it becomes my new favorite and I think I should make one just like it :]
    Thanks for being a bright spot on the web – you're an inspiration!

  33. Annalee Taylor January 22, 2010 at 11:33 pm #

    Hey, your amazing! Just wanted to let you know that your last "Timing" quilt totally inspired me, so I stayed up late and whipped one up! Check it out…, thanks for great inspiration. I might have to make one like this now!

    WOW!! This is gorgeous. I love the mix of fabrics, it works so well. You've answered a question I've been pondering for a while now. Thank you,

    Adorable Allison!!

    The red binding was a brilliant choice. To my eye, the chocolate browns really pop and make the other colors appear even more rich and vibrant.

    This is a happy quilt. We need a little happy in January after the "let down" of the holidays. Love it!!

    Looks like you're ready to picnic.

  53. Amy January 23, 2010 at 9:59 pm #

    Oh, wow! Absolutely gorgeous. I need a little eye joy — The January gloom is getting to me!

  56. Tracy January 24, 2010 at 12:38 am #

    I have NO business starting a new quilt but I really want to duplicate this. I just read the directions on the tan/red one and must try it.

  57. Rinachiyya January 24, 2010 at 1:51 am #

    Your scrappy January Quilt is gorgeous.Love it I don't know what it is but the more fabrics the beter I like it.
    For some reason scrap quilts pull me in right away because they are more interested to me.
    Yours are so beautiful with the colors you put picked
    Well done again.

    Happy Quilting,


  58. Heather January 24, 2010 at 2:17 am #

    Looks great. I think I should move to where you live. Your January weather looks much nicer than mine. :)
