Limeade ...

New quilt Limeade ... finished.

My favorite of all the photos. 

I had one little glitch.  When I got done I washed it and a small part of the binding came loose.  So I unstitched the binding all the way around and restitched with a zigzag.  Not quite as pretty but very durable.  It has been rewashed/dried and held up well.

Lots more pics are available in my facebook album, and it is also listed in my Etsy shop.

"Limeade" made from fat quarters of (City Blocks / Lime and Grey / Bernatex) from Bear Creek Quilting Company. Binding is grey/white polka dots from Hobby Lobby and is attached with a zig zag stitch for duarability. Backing is (Sweet Things / Lime Stripe / Holly Holderman) from Fat Quarter Shop. Measures 39" x 39".


  1. A perfect name. Great finish. I heart lime.

  2. Wonderful color choices. It is irritating when the binding isn't completely attached to all layers. Good way to fix it tho.

  3. I love the soothing colors in this quilt. Beautiful finish.

  4. I love the limeade colors, nice finish!

  5. very pretty colors Paula! I have to say that is one of my biggest fears- pulling a quilt out of the washer/dryer and having it fall apart. Glad you were able to fix it (fairly) easily!

    Thank you so much for linking up to Needle and Thread Thursday!

  6. Love it and love the name!!! I have used some of this line fun. I think the zig zag looks nice and will definitely hold up. I usually photo mine and use without washing....lord only knows what might happen when I do:)

  7. Fun colors! Looks fabulous and great thinking on using the zig zag to hold down the binding :) Best, Kate

  8. Ooh, I like that colour palette -- limeade indeed! Great fix for the binding, Paula. Congrats on a beautiful finish!

  9. This is a gorgeous quilt. Lime is a favourite colour of mine : )
