Yarn Dyed Linen Patchwork Quilt: Finished

Sometimes I can't resist cutting into a stack of fabric, especially if I know it will be a somewhat quick project. That's my justification for not waiting. It'll be quick so I can push the other projects (or housework) aside. That's how I was with this patchwork quilt I just finished. You can read my previous post here and get a closer look at the fabric selection as well. I love how this little quilt turned out. It's simple, pretty, traditional and modern at the same time -- just my style.
I took these pictures this weekend and yes, we still were getting snow and sleet. However, I am hoping this will be the last time I'm photographing a quilt in the snow until next winter.

Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised at how all the colors worked together as a whole. I had a bit of skepticism at the beginning, but once I started arranging the blocks, I was like, "Ooo...I like this!"
This quilt has a bit of everything -- both bold and classic prints and colors, as well as texture and a natural feel with the yarn dyed linen.

I quilted it with straight lines on both sides of the vertical and horizontal seams using natural colored thread on the top. You can see it's been washed and dried to give it a bit of crinkle.
For the backing, I used a bright and bold red and pink polka dot print from the Piccadilly line from DS Quilts.
This sweet quilt is for sale in my Etsy shop and would be a lovely gift for a little girl. To visit my shop and the listing for this quilt, click the links below.

I'm excited to start piecing together the black and white triangle quilt that I posted about here. I promised myself not to start any other random projects until that one is done.
