When I first saw the pattern being used for the Totally Groovy Quilt Along, I though it would take forever!
It is the Groove pattern by Emily Cier at Carolina Patchworks
The Quilt Along is being hosted by Alyssa @ Pile O' Fabric.
I decided not to use all solids in my quilt, and instead ordered three prints from Pat Bravo's Bohemian Soul Collection.
Love the Paisley print!
I added 2 Kona solids-Orange and Avocado.
I hadn't read the piecing instructions before ordering my fabric, so I was a bit horrified at the thought of trying to piece my printed fabric!
Thankfully, Amanda @ A Crafty Fox came up with an alternative piecing method using a log style which allows for directional fabric!
I worked on it all week-end and finished the top yesterday.....
I really love how this turned out and especially love having prints in it!
I am waiting for my backing fabric to arrive....

I think it will look amazing with the Groove front.
This is my only finish this week.
I ordered more Kona Navy to re-do( make larger) the borders on
