Rocqua Rhythm: Done :)

I love how this quilt turned out…so cheerful and fun.  It shrunk A LOT in the wash–a whole 5 inches!  With all the quilting it is a bit stiff, but that’s fine with me because I absolutely love it!

Rocqua Rhythm Quilt Top

I got my Rocqua Rhythm quilt top done today.  The fabric is Farmer’s Market by Sandi Henderson for Michael Miller, and the pattern is Cubic Rhythm from the Spring 2009 issue of Quilts and More.

It’s bright and cheery, although I do wish that I had made 3 blocks of the cherries and put those on the diagonal…note to self, need to get a design wall set up.  I still think it looks great and is the type of quilt to put a smile on your face.  Now I just need to piece the backing and I will put this one in the cue to get quilted.

Rocqua Rhythm Blocks

I got my Sandi Henderson Farmer’s Market fabric cut and organized on Monday, and while it rained outside today, I sewed up the blocks:

Now I need to sew the blocks together and sew the borders on.

New Fabric–Farmer’s Market

I’ve been itching to use this fabric ever since I bought it a few months ago.  I keep meaning to get started, but every evening something seems to come up.  Hopefully tonight I’ll be able to cut the fabric.  Love, love, love Sandi Henderson’s Farmer’s Market line.
