Quilt for Zoe {Finished Quilt}

I am really excited to have the Quilt for Zoe finished and ready to gift to my friends tonight.

I was able to get it finished and photographed around town while the weather was delightful a bit earlier this week. You can see the hazy layer of smoke on the left in the photo just above the block wall; the Thomas Fire continues to rage on about an hour south.

The backing (Birds of Night in Slate by Maureen Cracknell for Art Gallery Fabrics) compliments the colors on the front so perfectly. I was kneeling on a hill in our local park while waiting on the wind to die down enough for my husband to get the photograph…

…and you can see the tiniest bits of my knees if you look hard under the bottom edge of the quilt in the photo above. The pieced quilt top finished at 42.5-inches wide by 52.5-inches high, and after the first wash, the quilt is now 40-inches wide by 49-inches high; it has a delightful crinkle!

I used straight line quilting to add in a Fibonacci Sequence to the quilt. It goes 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, and then it repeats both horizontally and vertically.

I used my first Dutch Label for the quilt!

I have a pattern written for the quilt design that expands from baby, to lap, and even queen size. I am hoping to be able to release it in a few weeks, but I definitely want to have all the details triple checked before I publish.

Linking up with Finish it Friday.

    Hello Yvonne; This is a lovely quilt! It amazes me how the selection of your fabrics and their place in the design makes me stop and really look. Just thinking a variety of questions while at the same time it makes me want to touch that section and feel it and see if it reveals the emotion farther. I hope that this makes sense, Yvonne, you know I do not always do very well at describing because of my brain injury. I also want to say that I think you made a magnificent choice in the backing fabric! I have wanted to own several yards of this exact fabric since it was released. I just fell in love with the owls and their expressions, plus the colors in the fabric design itself is just fabulous. Thank you for sharing your spectacular quilt with us! You have achieved another great success! Continue to fill your dreams! Have a wonderful day and a great Holiday!

    This is so pretty! I love the grid quilting! How did you do that? Is the sequence in terms of inches?

    1. Great question, thanks for asking!

      I started with 1 line, then I moved over 2 inches and quilted 1 line, then I moved over 2 inches and quilted a 1 line, followed by a 2nd line at 1″ spacing. Then 2″ 1 line, 1″, 1 line, 1″ 1 line… etc. So the lines that are grouped together are spaced 1″ apart and the “gap” is 2″ between the sequence numbers. I hope that makes sense!

    I think this is my all-time favourite quilt – design, colours & quilting, make it so appealing! Have been enjoying your blogs through bloglovin’ for some months & joined you with email now. Spellcheck is picking on my Australian spelling!

    Gorgeous finish! I love the way this turned out and the design you did. I really so admire your ability to design these beautiful quilts.

  19. Well, I’ll admit it – I had to look up what a Fibonacci Sequence is! Then I still couldn’t figure out the quilting until you explained it! This is my favorite quilt of yours,just love everything about it. Bravo, and Merry Christmas!

  24. I think the quilt is brilliant, especially the Fibonacci sequence quilting idea! And that backing…love Maureen’s fabrics, but I am not familiar with that one. It’s fantastic indeed.
