WIP Wednesday - Celtic Garden - A Finish

I have been working on this quilt for awhile. It has always been a happy/sad project as Rob helped with the picking out of the fabrics. As he became less mobile it was something fun we could do together! This one was really challenging to put together as I was unsure how scrappy to make it. I used the same fabric in the centre of each block and for the backing and the binding. Love how it looks.
As you read through quilt blogs it is wonderful to hear what quilters think of their own work. What they liked, didn't like, and what they would change for next time. One of the recurring ideas I picked up is too much! Too much fabric choice, too much colours, just too much! So I had to make an effort and contain myself. I love bright colours all mixed in together!

So the final pictures disappeared. I will have to use this one.

  1. LOVE your bright fabrics! I used the garden trellis pattern in a wedding wallhanging I made my sister more than 10 years ago now - still love how it 'makes' the quilt. Love your two blues.

  2. it is beautiful - love the bright colours!

  3. Pam, in time the fabrics that Rob helped pick will make your quilt all the more precious.
    Your Celtic Garden is gorgeous - unlike any I have ever seen before! I love minimalism sometimes, but love the use of color more often. I am a fellow Kaffe fan too (as you can see from my Needle and thread link up.) Can you ever really use too much color? LOL
