A Tsuru Quilt Top { and GIVEAWAY! } : :

Tsuru Wind Blown

Oh how I love Tsuru!! It's the new collection by Rashida Coleman-Hale for Cloud9 Fabrics. When these arrived, I knew they had to become a quilt top asap!

Tsuru Quilt Top

I originally decided to turn my FQ bundle into a quilt full of framed centered and off-centered squares. I was able to get two blocks finished right away after settling on that idea. I was so excited to see it all come together, but ran out of time. It was a few days later before I got back to it, and after taking a second look, I decided to play with some improv.

And, I'm SO glad I did!!

Tsuru Quilt Top

Improv is so much fun for me! Once I started, I just couldn't stop, and ended up staying up half the night until my Tsuru quilt top was completely finished! I've been really inspired by Aztec patterns in prints, home decor, and fashion lately, so that definitely worked it's way into the design of this quilt top!

Tsuru Finished

I used lots of coordinating Art Gallery Fabric Pure Element solids in the quilt, as well. In order from left to right I used -- Snow, Linen White, Mirage Blue, Light Grey, Coral Reef, Nocturnal, Crystal Pink, and Empire Yellow. Goodness, I've already wiped out half of my solids stash this year!

Tsuru & Pure Elements

Our white fence and all the snow we had this past weekend made such a pretty backdrop for this quilt top.  The colors that make up this collection are just so amazing together!

Tsuru Color

Of course, I do have my personal favorite photos! This one, the little peek I shared of my Tsuru quilt top on Monday.

Tsuru Quilt Top -- I can't wait to share it later this week with a Tsuru Giveaway!!!

That night I brought my quilt along as we went to the park to feed the ducks. I thought I might get some pretty shots, but it was too windy in one direction and so glaringly bright in the other. This photo was such a happy accident,  I L♥VE it!

  138. i had a lot of old neckties from a great uncle, grandfather, both who died, my son, old ones he does not use any more. some were really old. i took them and made them into a king size quilt. i cut them in half and made a big flower in the center and 1/4 flowers at each corner. now it has memories to it too. i gave it to my son and he loves it. oh, i quilted it by hand and the quilt design is the outline of ties, laying around. it was fun.

    ReplyDelete
  139. I love the way you put colours together, the quilt is stunning and I love the way you photograph your work. I have just made a cushion using your Quilted Heart Throw Pillow tutorial and adapting it to the fabric I had. I loved the scissor fabric when I saw it on your blog and my daughters bought me a layer cake of the collection and I had to use it in the cushion cover.
    Thank you so much for the inspiration.

  148. I am pretty inspired by your Stitch Sketch girl quilt that you are doing. I have been trying to do a quilt for my daughter using some Beauty is You panels and just have been struggling with what else to do on it without making it look like a disconnected mish mash. You've provided me with some inspiration.

  165. Eeeeeeeee!!! This fabric is hella awesome. I need some of this, for sure.

    My favorite quilt is a batik quilt from my mom when I graduated college. I don't have a link because it was back before the www was big (I feel so old!).

    Thanks for the chance!

  166. Thank you for this giveaway and this nice quilt. I am learning new things all the time in quilting! I am hoping to try hand quilting soon but we shall see when I get to that. I don't have much time to quilt with three little boys! But, I fit it in when I can. I recently finished three quilts for my little sons for Christmas though. They are simple ones as I am learning and still a beginner. Anyway, here is the link:

  179. Beautiful quilt! :) My favorite quilt is the one my late maternal Grandmother gave me when I was still a teenager. It's packed now for an upcoming move. Will take a photo once the move is complete.

  180. What a fantastic giveaway! The quilt is so pretty, and I think my favorite picture is the one you took of it on your living room fire. The room looks so nice and cozy!

    My favorite quilt is probably the quilt I'm working on for my daughter right now, a paper pieced grandmother's flower garden. We emigrated to Ireland when my daughter was going into Irish secondary school and next February she'll be moving back to the US in time to sit the NY Bar exam. I'm hoping the quilt can be done in time for her to take it with her when she moves, and each stitch has my hopes and prayers for her woven into them.
