This quilt pattern was super amazing from start to finish. My original idea came from driving on a road trip and saw a design similar to this one on the side of a building. I grabbed graph paper and started drawing and coloring the pattern in. I ate dinner by the side of a little lake and that is where this quilt got its name. I chose the whole color palate based on the name and just love it looks.
For the backing of this quilt, I didn’t really know what I wanted. I contacted the owner of one of my favorite Etsy sellers and she gave me several options that would match. I saw this fabric and knew that it would be perfect. The lines look so good on the back and give it the perfect lake effect.
The binding is Art Gallery Fabrics Bronze and I love how it frames out the quilt. I hand stitched the binding on the back and it gives it the perfect finish.
Here are the fabrics that I used for this quilt.
Middle Squares: Kona Fog
Strip Sets: Kona Teal Blue, Putty and Honey
Binding: Art Gallery Fabric Bronze
Backing: Art Gallery Fabrics Trouvaille Routes Ocean Indie
The photograph location for this quilt was Balboa park. The little ducks were so fun to watch and look at this beautiful sunset that we saw as we left. I love to take quilt pictures in nature and this location was perfect. Don’t be surprised if I use it again. 🙂
