“Nancy” Quilt Finished!

24 02 2015

I’m happy to report that my “Nancy” lap quilt is finished!  You can read about the inspiration for this quilt and my method for making the blocks here. Incidentally, Lynn Harris, who designed “Nancy,” has written “Every Last Piece;” it will be available from amazon.com in mid-May.


I used a lime green thread to quilt an all over design that resembles the lines on a contour map. This thread choice was good in that it blends well with all the fabrics, BUT since I was quilting in the evening, it was very hard to tell where I had already quilted. It blended almost too well. However, I cannot think of a thread color I would prefer for “Nancy.”


I really like this design which utilized many scrappy strings, and I will probably make another very similar. Now begins the hunt for a lime green fabric. Or perhaps I could use a different color for the large triangles. What color would you advise?

Hi, Aby,
I absolutely LOVE this quilt and your technique for making it! Please bring it in March. I’m thinking a medium to dark blue would be perfect for a QOV quilt and I hope I can get one started.
