Another Noteworthy Quilt (#42)

Using the softer colors of the Noteworthy collection worked better than expected to make this hourglass quilt.  I purchased 2 fat quarter bundles of what I thought was the entire collection.  It wasn't - and missing were the cuter elements ... birds on the wire and the bucket list notes in various colors.
Since Noteworthy came out in 2012 - it was easier to find a few yards of one design - I choose the blue bucket list to 'flesh' out the plainer patterns.  
Cutting the half square triangles from my Accuquilt 6.5" die - I assembled them into hourglass blocks (see how to here at the bottom of the Far Far Away post).
Because half the quilt is light blue, the overall vibe is calm & soothing. Bright white minky on the back doesn't conflict with the muted palette and the zig zag quilting in Aurifil 50wt. grey blue (#5007) and white (#2024) just sinks beautifully into the whole design.
