Enjoy A Little Evening Shade!

Evening Shade quilt pattern made with Old Green Calicos fabrics by Pam Buda for Marcus Fabrics
Dream a minute with me, won't you....of a serene little home on a river bank, where you're swinging on the porch swing with this quilt as the sun goes down, enjoying the Evening Shade. That is what I imagined when I designed this quilt, and of course, how it came to have that name. 

Evening Shade was great fun to piece.  There are 12 pieced blocks with Flying Geese, and 6 pinwheel blocks, that together, create fun movement within the quilt, and have your eyes dancing all around.  Love that!

Believe it or not, the 12 pieced Flying Geese blocks are made using all of the fabrics in the 10" precut pack of Old Green Calicos collection.  That makes the blocks super scrappy, which I just love.  
Thought I would show you a few up-close photos of the quilt details.  I have a blue and green living room, so Evening Shade just fits right in.  
I took some low lighting photos so you can see the quilting.
I don't know about you, but I adore that little blue and green shirting.  So cute!  My friend and co-worker, Debbie McClarence pieced Evening Shade for me.
Evening Shade was quilted by my friend, Ronda Dranter, in an edge to edge design.  The blocks are 12 inches, and the quilt measures 72" x 89". 

Please be sure to ask for the pattern and the Old Green Calicos fabric collection at your local quilt shop.  

If by chance they don't have it, I am once again offering a special PRE-ORDER price on kits for Evening Shade.  If you'd like to pre-order a kit, click here to read all the details.  Evening Shade kits will ship in March, or earlier if possible.  

You can order the Evening Shade pattern here.

In case you have a different quilt project in mind, or just want to add some green, blue and light prints to your stash, I also have Old Green Calicos Fat Quarter and Fat Eighth bundles, and the 10 inch precut available as well.

I hope you like my newest quilt design, Evening Shade.  Back to work on more inspirations just for you.  Enjoy your day.
