Peachy Keen

Peachy Keen is the working name for my latest quilt top finish and is my entry for this year's Pantone Challenge using the color Peach Fuzz. (You can read more about the challenge on Sara's blog.) I will be entering just the quilt top - love that this is an option.

I'm busy basting the quilt now and looking forward to getting the quilting underway.  Fabrics used are Painter's Palette color Verbena (aka Peach Fuzz) along with black and a color called Bittersweet which is a red-orange. I plan on using Aurifil 2277 Light Red Orange and 2220 Light Salmon.

The quilt is 48" x 60". I debated with a few friends whether to make the quilt square or rectangular and (clearly!) went with the rectangle. My plan is to quilt with my walking foot and then come back and add some FMQ. 

This is my second year joining the challenge. Last year's entry was my quilt top Echo.


  1. Oh, I really like how the shapes interact and tumble down the quilt top. Have fun quilting!

  2. Very pretty and creative quilt top. Looking forward to seeing it all finished.

  3. That color palette is just yummy. Your design is really neat too, especially the Drunkards-Path-looking block that really isn't, is it? With the plumpness of the convex curve, and skinny slivers of the concave curve, you've modified the shape... and I like it! It seems more challenging than the typical block. I'm glad you entered the challenge. That peach color doesn't do a thing for me, at the moment anyway. But knowing how I function, in about a year it will be my new favorite color! Ha!


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
