In the meadow

The lush spring grass seemed like the perfect backdrop for the quilt top from my retreat. I love the white with the greens and pops of orange. The overall result is such a bright, fresh quilt. It's a very traditional pattern, especially with the multiple borders, but I think it turned out quite modern by using the white with the subtle crosshatch and virtually monochromatic fabrics.

I'm almost finished piecing together the back, then I think I'll send it off for machine quilting. Maybe a leaf or floral pattern. Then I can't wait to get the orange binding on there!
