Seattle Wedding Quilt to the SPA

In early May, my family spent a week at the beach and I used some afternoon sew time to assemble the blocks for the Brushstrokes pattern by Shiners View. This is a very well written pattern and a forgiving pattern - the blocks are trimmed after sewing and there really isn't a wrong way to do things. 

I wanted the quilt to be slightly bigger than the pattern called for so I made an additional row and column so the quilt top will finish at 63" x 70". Fabrics are all Painters Palette solids in Aruba, Marine, Gulfstream plus a dark gray I had in my stash.

This will be a gift so I'm excited to see what it looks like all quilted!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. Adding more blocks to increase the size was a great choice for this quilt. Looks fantastic!

  2. The colours are wonderful. It's an interesting pattern.

  3. It looks great! I hope it enjoys the time at the spa and you will love the outcome ;) xo

  4. Oh yes! It's definitely a pretty design. It looks really modern, and your color choices are yummy. A nice all-over curvy design will beautifully set off the piecing.


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