Rolling Stone finished

This is Noelle and Keenan's wedding quilt.  They were married last March, and so they got their quilt for Christmas.  It is one of my favorite quilts to date.  A lot of piecing, but I really like this soothing color palette.  Noelle wanted cool blues and grays.  I bought most of the fabric at Quilted Threads and Cobblestone Quilts, and I supplemented with some Japanese fabrics I already had.

The block is Rolling Stone - such a good old fashioned graphic block.  I tend to add a little sashiko stitching to all of my quilts -

Noelle wanted one red block.  This print (fussy cut) reminds me of her childhood artwork;)

The quilt lives in Raleigh NC with Noelle and Keenan.



  1. SO BEAUTIFUL!! I know they love it; definitely worth the wait. The photo settings just add to the beauty.

  2. This quilt is so beautiful. Nice job. Hugs

  3. This quilt is so very gorgeous! I love everything about it, from the fabrics to the subtle sashiko accents, to the sweet red block. Perfect!

  4. I love the beautiful quilt you made! I love the red block too. Hugs,

  5. I love it, too! Is the rolling stone a traditional block? Because it looks very contemporary, don't you think? The blues and grays are perfect - very crisp and clean. Simple block repeat (which I love) yet the sashiko and the red block identify the quilt as uniquely yours. Beautiful job!

  6. This is one of the prettiest Rolling Stone quilts I have ever seen! Just beautiful!

  7. What a gorgeous quilt! I just love the blue/gray color scheme and the one red block and the sashiko stitching is the icing on the cake.

    I recently saved some pictures of a vintage quilt on ebay that I want to make that uses this block as the center medallion. I was trying to decide on a color scheme and now I know what I'm going to use! Thanks! Now I just have to figure out the math for it and the rest of the blocks.
