Street Grid

 A few years back I bought a good amount of the fabric line Birchtree Lane by @connectingthreads. I have used the fabric in lots of projects, and love the combination of blues and greens. This time I wanted to make a bigger quilt to showcase the great fabric line.

 I have had this free pattern from Art Gallery Fabrics printed out for a couple of years. It is called Street Grid and is designed by @patbravodesign. It is a bold design and it was fun to make. It looks more complicated than it actually is, it's a relatively quick project.

I had to utilize the nice day to take the quilt out to my trusted quilt holder, the uprooted tree in the forest. Look how the greens in the quilt match the scenery!


 The finished quilt is 56"x70". In addition to the Birchtree Lane fabric I used some additional solids. I FMQ quilted it with a stipple in white Aurifil thread #2021.


Here's a closeup of the quilt on my porch. My goal for the year is to use fabric from my stash and not buy any new fabric (if I can avoid it). It is great to see some reduction in my stash.

This is my eighth charity quilt for the year 2022, and number 87 all time for the children's ward at the hospital.

Keep on quilting!
