I've been doing an informal quilt-along with Wendy  of Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilting Life of the Coral Coreopsis pattern by James & Gracie.  Here is my finished quilt!  I used Kona solids, and for once, I do not know what they are!  Most of these came from leftover layer cakes and were no longer labeled. I could look them up, and at some point I probably will.

I didn't remember to get a photo of just the top before it was layered on a piece of fleece with polka dots, so you can't really see it well before the quilting.  I quilted with a large spiral and dark gray thread.  This will go to the local children's hospital.

Others may know this but I did not: Coral Coreposis is a plant/flower.   From my limited research, the plant is Coreposis and coral indicates the plants that have a dark orange color.  Since mine is not in the colorway, I dropped the "coral" part of the pattern name. 

I set finishing my quilt as my One Monthly Goal with Patty of Elm Street Quilts.  Unfortunately, while I wrote the goal post in time, I forgot to actually link it at the beginning of the month.  (Last month, I finished my goal but didn't post. I am not doing well.)


  1. Emily it’s stunning! I love the colours in your Coreposis. Now I’m going to check Wendy’s blog to see hers! Fun to quilt along with a friend 😉

  2. What a great quilt and block! I love the polka dots-it will be perfect for a child. So much fun that you and Wendy do this every once in awhile. I set no goals last month, and made nothing. So, this month, I hope to be on it - also host tgiff at the end of the month so I better make a decision!

  3. I do like your quilt with the purples and teals/aqua - now I need to get mine posted (and quilted). This is a great goal for the month!

  4. Lovely! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congratulations on your finish.

  5. Very pretty! You picked a very pretty cooler palette. I'm not doing so well in the blogiverse either. I'm mostly managing to post, but am way behind on blog reading and answering comments. Hope things get better for you soon. At least you have stitching time.
