Happier Brickyard Quilt

 This is quilt #2 made from Deena Rutter's Happier fabrics.
I really love the way that this one shows off the cute prints.
I'm excited because this one will also be displayed in the Riley Blake booth at Market next week. I know there will be tons of other quilts and displays - mine may end up in a tucked-away corner - but I'll know it's there and that makes me happy. :)
I pieced the back with some of the trees and the more of the stripe and used the green with blue dots for binding. This fabric lives up to it's name - it IS very happy.
I am writing a pattern for this one. When all the craziness around here dies down a little. Because, let's face it, the craziness never completely goes away.

It IS very happy. And how marvelous to know that so many ladies (and a few fellas) will be oohing and aahing over it in the Riley Blake booth. I love the orange pops of color - I would never consider myself an orange person, but I just love orange on quilts! I need to add orange to my stash. Congrats on another gorgeous finish!

Amazing! I am going to be free motion quilting for the first time (other than practice) this weekend. Any tips, tricks, or special techniques???

What a beautiful quilt!! I've been looking and looking at tons of quilts this week. I want to make my daughter a full sized quilt with bigger squares like yours. If you write up a pattern that one may be the one I use! I haven't seen any others come close to the idea in my head! :-)

I am in love with this quilt! One day when my skills improve, I will definitely attempt it.
I think my favorite part is the way the stripes go in different directions. Beautiful.
