Noah and Matilda Back posting

I am either working on too many projects or not enough! I am really enjoying the Noah and Matilda sew-a-long (visit the Facebook page here). I am making them in numerical order to ensure that I WILL make all of them and not just the easy ones. For some reason I skipped right to block 2D last week and missed posting these two.

Block 6C was another favorite of mine. I love the crazy shape of this “flower?”. I used an antique fabric for the background and it was so thin that I was afraid it might bleed through to the backing, but it turned out to be just fine.

Block 1D is a bit skimpy for my taste. I like a robust wreath with chunky petals (I can’t wait to get to 5D – nice big petals in the flower!). I did add one petal to make the alternate cheddar and yellow colors work out symmetrically and I added the little neon circle in the center.
The backing on this one is one of my favorite neons (I seem to be saying that a lot about these super neons!).
So, back to work and I’ll try to post them in order!

  3. Wow, love that backing!
    I don't know how you get it all done--the applique, hand quilting, AND binding all finished on each block as you go. Leaves me in awe!

  6. Sweet applique. Really like the echo quilting in your lovely blocks. Dawn presented a workshop at our guild and we did one of her Noah and Matilda blocks. Mine is done but is waiting on more companions:-)

  8. The neon print is brillant. I love seeing how you're tweaking the blocks in a very Wendy style.

  9. As much as I love applique, I think I'm going to enjoy seeing the back of this quilt as much as the front with all those different neon prints. It's just so fun!
