A Canvas Quilt

The talented Leanne at She Can Quilt has designed a fantastic pattern called Canvas and I was so excited to get to test it for her. Here is my version.

This pattern was super easy. I spent about twice as much time picking out the fabrics as I did actually putting it all together. Even so, I went from rummaging around in my stash to completed quilt top in only a couple of hours.

The pattern calls for four different center fabrics and four others for the second row. I kept picking out fabrics and then realizing I only had three that would work for one row or the other. It was very frustrating since I wanted this to be a no-trip-to-the-fabric-store project and in the end I went with two for each row. I quite like how it turned out.

I plan to quilt this using my Fine Line Quilter's Rulers that I ordered after reading a review by Marelize of Stitch by Stitch. So far I've only tried my rulers out on a bit of scrap fabric, so I'm excited to give them a real test.

  7. The quilter rulers had even more possibilities. Neat! I like your square, good choice on contrast, spring time colors and pattern.

  8. It is fun and time consuming to pick the fabrics. I find that it feels especially so because there are so few of them. Your choices are lovely and I hope you will show it off when it is all done. I need those rulers too, they look great.
