I dug into a fat quarter bundle of "Bespoken" by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery that I picked up at spring Quilt Market, and fell in love with the jewel tones. I chose FreeSpirit and Kona solids from my stash, and amazingly, I found four great matches for my prints. For the binding, I opted for Art Gallery's Oval Elements, and the lime color gave a fresh pop of bright color to contrast the darker tones.
In case you can't tell, I had too much fun taking this quilt on a photo shoot. This is a little gem from the alley, right behind my house. This "No tresspas'n" was a fun find. It almost seems I tried to find the dirtiest places (it was a wet day) to put this quilt to get the photo that was just right. I told my mom not to worry, but that I'd wash it in time to give to her!
For the backing, I chose Tufted Tweets by Laurie Wisbrun, and a strip of wine-colored solid I had left over from the sashing. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the quilts at Blogger's Quilt Festival!
