Talk of the Town Quilt

Over the weekend I put the finishing touches my remake of Talk of the Town, it’s been so fun to reimagine my quilts in solids!

My photo first thing this morning was rather glum, spring in the mountains is a little unsettled, but the colors are pretty much spot on!

Talk of the Town is a fat quarter friendly pattern, this throw is made of 16 fat quarters and it’s the perfect size for snuggling on the couch, or sitting on the sidelines at your next sporting event! The pattern includes baby through king size quilts too, depending on the number of fat quarters you want to incorporate in your quilt.

The quilting is done with my Baby Lock Crown Jewel and the Pro-stitcher – I love the texture and can’t wait to try this quilting pattern again with a few more tweaks. I found the “wandering arrow” pattern on

In case you are interested, here’s a list of the Bella’s that I used in the quilt top:

9900-174 American blue, -310 taupe, -242 linen, -192 leaf, -110 dark teal, -206 mauve, -182 porcelain, -109 pond, -244 harvest gold, -218 indigo, -283 lead, -240 dove, -281 eggshell, -234 evergreen, -105 rust, -285 unbleached
I like having a few different light neutrals in the mix, it allows your eye to rest, but having them not all match still adds interest to the quilt.
What are you piecing this week?
We have one more week of school before spring break, and we are all itching for the week off here!
Hope you have a great week –

    This is fantastic, and had you not mentioned re-imagining it in solids, I would have thought it was designed for them.
