Pattern: Canasta by Elizabeth Hartman (this pattern has been retired)
Fabrics: Crazy prints combined with many colors of Kona Cottons
Quilted: Professionally by Pat Boeck
Size: 72 x 84
Finished: February 2017
This is the second of the two Canasta quilts I made. (HERE is the first one) Although I thought I split the blocks up pretty evenly between the two quilts, this quilt seems more green and the first one more blue. No matter, I think both turned out really well.
The same backing was used for both quilts; I think this print is really fun. The binding is Kona in Pepper which gives the quilt a nice little outline.
The same spikey meander quilting was done on both quilts. This quilter does all her quilting free motion, without the use of a computer. I love how the very organic quilting looks on all these wonky blocks.
This finish was a VERY LONG time coming, and it is wonderful to cross this quilt off my FAL list!
