SEEDS OF TIME

I don’t know why this was in a “flimsy” stage for so long because it’s always been a favorite. I used a fat quarter bundle called Seeds of Time by Kansas Troubles/Moda and the pattern was a freebie offered by Moda. I think I made this quilt top in 2004 (?) but I really can’t remember.

I hope that you like it as much as I do.

By the way, either you didn’t notice it or were too kind to notice it. Go back and look in the lower right corner of my Rhubarb and Ginger quilt – see it now – the sashing strip is different from the rest. Why? Well, when I was making this I ran out of the correct sashing fabric but needed to finish it quickly so I decided it would be best to just use one of the others. I did get more the correct sashing fabric but my husband suggested that I leave it alone – someday it will be a good conversation starter.

Again, thank you for stopping by my blog – I do appreciate you!

Come back tomorrow (Monday) for the final sneak peek of the Celebrate Spring Fat Quarter Challenge that Nicole, Dawn and I are doing. Thursday, May 31 will be the BIG Reveal.

Oh, wow, what a sweet looking quilt! Love the colours. I made a quilt with the Kansas Troubles line of fabric. I just love Moda! Keep well!

Vicky said...

Okay, now you're really getting into my favorite fabrics! Dibbies!

I didn't notice the sashing strip until you pointed it out. You can just say that's your humility piece! (I had to stick another fabric in the border of my brother's wonky leaf quilt, and he hasn't noticed it yet! LOL)

Way to churn them out, Darlene!!

Oh, I LOVE that quilt! You should have finished it long ago - what a beauty!

Leigh said...

What a gorgeous quilt. No I didn't notice the sashing, I was too taken with the stars and the colors. :-)

Norma said...

I agree with you--this one is a beauty! It really should be finished so you can use it though! *VBG* I think we all have flimsies waiting to be quilted--sometimes they wait for a long time!

Susan said...

Nope, I don't see it. A difference that makes no difference is no difference.

I like the Seeds of time Quilt a lot! Don't tell me what's wrong with it. I don't need to know. It's beautiful!

Ooooh, yes, I LOVE that quilt! You did a fantastic job, girlfriend, as well as with the Rhubarb and Ginger too! They are both just gorgeous!! Can't wait to see what's up for today! :D

Linda said...

Another beauty, didn't even notice the different fabric until you pointed it out.

WOW, the Seeds of Time is just gorgeous! I've started a neutral log cabin just now myself, but that pattern is just WOW.

I had to look and look to find the errant sashing, don't even think twice about it, it's charming!

Nicole said...

My gosh Darlene, you have been a busy gal! This Seeds of Time quilt is positively first rate. I love the fabric group and do recall thinking it was a great pattern when I saw it on the United Notions website.
I didn't notice anything amiss with your Rhubarb and Ginger border either.

Nicole said...

Oh yes, now I see that you used a different fabric in R&G lattice! Silly girl, you should have spoken up--I have plenty of the fabric you needed and could have sent you a piece! Isn't that annoying, when you run out and just need a teensy smidge more?

Dawn said...

Oh I do like it! And the quilting is really nice on it! Those colors are always so warm and cozy!

Quilting Kim said...

What a gorgeous quilt - I love everything about it. As a matter of fact, I had downloaded that off of the internet a while ago, but had no idea that it would be so gorgeous. I'm off to dig it out.

Libby said...

Another beauty - I love the little different piece in the sashing. It's one of those things that will make people think 100 years from now *s*

Kim said...

Somehow I missed reading this post! Hey, I have one of those Seeds of Time quilt tops too! Imagine that! Don't you love it? It's on my quilt rack, waiting for me to add applique--where it's been for a couple years now! LOL!

Judy said...

I love the quilt and still love that quilting design!!

Penny said...

HI Just found your post about the Seeds of Time when I was surfing to find a pattern for my stash of Moda fabrics. I love it! But I can't find it on the web - not even the United Notions site. Can you tell me where I might find it or do you have a copy you can email me?
Thanks from Penny in OZ

Penny said...

HI I just saw your post on the Seeds of Time quilt as I searched the net trying to find a pattern for my Moda fabrics! I know it was 2 years ago, but do you know where I might get the pattern now? Have looked at the United Notions site but can't see it.

Thanks from Penny in Oz
