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!

You can find the Art Gallery Fabric Pure Elements available at Hawthorne Threads, Fat Quarter Shop, Moona Fabrics, The Intrepid Thread, Pink Castle Fabrics, Stash Fabrics, and Contemporary Cloth!

And, beautiful Tsuru is scheduled to hit stores this week!! You can find it available in the shop of my sponsors Hawthorne Threads, The Intrepid Thread, Stash Fabrics, Project Anthologies, and Pink Castle Fabrics!

And, a Zakka Style book signing! Oh, I wish I were going!

thanks for a chance at this awesome collection of fabric!

Allison C said...

Great job on this quilt! I'm still in love with the single girl pattern, but haven't been successful with the pattern yet. I will keep trying until I get it right. I am also in love with equilateral triangle quilts and HST solid quilts right now.

Nikita said...

Beautiful top..I love the vibrant fun colours! I recently got a swoon pattern, I jsut think it's really pretty..so that is something I think I am going to attempt to make myself sometime this year.

Beautiful quilt top! I really want to make my daughter a dress with the Blossom Festival print!

Melissa said...

My favorite quit is a ratty old quilt made of all types of non cotton fabrics that my grandma made when I was little. I fussed over it and she gave it to me. It's been through a lot and its still on my old bed at my moms house :)

Mary Ann said...

Love your quilt top! So pretty!

giddy99 said...

It's Valentine's Day, and DH did a great job...Chocolates greeted me this morning :) whoooohooo!

Eva said...

Such lovely fabric and I love what you made with it! I have to say that I really love your art quilt top you posted earlier this week! It's one of the most beautiful quilt tops I've seen, ever! :-)

I've also been really inspired by "Feathering the Nest with Vintage Inspired Quilts" by Brigitte Giblin, recently. Such beautiful quilts with such great detail in there.

Debra Lee said...

Not sure about a pattern but the fabric is lovely!

Sandy D said...

I love how you displayed your quilt on your beautiful floor. We are having the same flooring installed this week in our home and I love the idea to place your quilt on top for the picture you posted. I am going to use that idea in the future. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day. Ginger

Nicole J said...

I love this line! What a treat it would be to win! I am looking forward to trying new things I have seen in the blogosphere lately this year such as improv chevrons. It will be interesting as I have never done any imrpov piecing before but I am really excited. So glad I found blogs to explore!

Gorgeous, as usual Maureen! Happy Valentine's Day.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Very well done. And the fabrics are fabulous! My story is that for the first time in over 2 months I was able to rotary cut 2 1/2" strips. I broke my right wrist the first part of December and it has been a long climb back. I'm not there yet, but it is a start!

Beautiful quilt and gorgeous fabric.

Kim said...

Your quilt is beautiful. I think my favorite quilt would have to be my first scrap quilt. I made it using the log cabin pattern. I love it because it had all the fabrics that I used for all the quilts I made for my family when I first started quilting.

Nupur said...

How perfectly gorgeous! The data analyst in me loves the "bar graph" block LOL.
I'm just finishing up my very first quilt. I used this very simple pattern and highly recommend it for very-beginner quilters:

Carmen said...

Oooh, I just love those huge blocks! I guess it means I'm growing as a quilter, but I think all my favourite quilts are still to be made, ideas just hatched in my head. All my previous ones have been fun to make, for sure, but like you, I'm hoping to focus on quilt work this year and make them happen!

sandra k williams said...

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.

Peter Stocks said...

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.

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.

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!

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:

I love this quilt! I have a stack of Washi that I haven't decided what to do with yet -- this gives me some ideas!

I love the picture of it hanging in the tree. Also, I like the one with the silhouette of a human behind it ;) I really enjoyed making the wizard of oz rainbow block quilt http://pinterest.com/pin/48202658482109884/

What a neat giveaway! The Tsuru fabrics are so lovely. I'm currently working on my first quilt, using Simply Color fabric from V & Co.

Love your quilt and would love to win some Tsuru fabric!
I think my favourite quilts are the I Spy quilts I have made for each of my grandchildren, three down, one to go!

Thanks for the chance, I'm working on a rail fence quilt using some 30's prints and really loving how it is turning out. I don't have any photos yet, but hope to have some when it is done.

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.

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.

Thanks for the chance! I love the swoon quilt!

Those prints have a very summery vibe to them!
