WIP Wednesday - Quilts for Boston Update

This past week I have been busy with working on piecing the quilt top and also couple of backings for the "Quilts for Boston". We had a sew-in @ Quilters Way last Wednesday it was a fun night spending the wonderful ladies from BMQG and Quilters Way.


This time around I picked up some blocks and then added more negative space by making HTS using neutral fabrics(gray or white) . Here is my final outcome:

My Second pieced quilt top for "Quilts for Boston"
I really liked how the quilt turned out. This does have some fabrics which are not exactly yellow. When I picked up the fabric I thought it looked yellow but its more of a lime green/little bit of yellowish.

Here is my contribution to the quilt. I initial made simple big HTS but didn't like couple of blocks. So, added another small print.

My blcoks for this quilt. The big print is from the fabric donated for "Quilts for Boston" and lime green/yellowish fabric is from my stash
Quilt Backs:
I had 6 yards of this blue Mechanical Genius by Timeless Tressure fabric which perfected worked with the colors they needed for "Quilts for Boston". So, I made two backs from my stash.

From my stash I had these beautiful blue Mechanical Genius fabric to make 2 quilt backs(60x70)
The below two blocks didn't make the cut. And I'm glad that I didn't include these in this quilt. I hope someone from our BMQG will transform these two blocks to look more modern.

I got excited @Sew-in to see the big print and made these two blocks. But they didn't make it since the negative space color was too dark

Now linking up with Lee@Freshly Pieced.
