The Vibrant Joy quilt pattern was put in my shop last week and I finally finished quilting the version of the quilt with a black batik background.

Vibrant Joy Quilt 54 x 75

I used a solid black batik from Island Batik for the background, do you remember when I made this same quilt with a white background for my charity quilt? The size of the quilt is 54 x 75.

Hobbs Black Heirloom Batting

I used Hobbs Black Heirloom 80/20 batting. It is nice to be able to use a black batting when the top is black. I have flannel on the back and this will be a warm quilt.

Binding My Quilt

I always sew my binding on by machine and use Wonder Clips to hold the binding in place. I also like to use Tailor Clappers to set the binding when I fold it over.

Flannel Backing

I just had to share another cute photo of Rusty with the quilt. The backing is a flannel that has been in my stash for at least 6 years.

  1. Connie,
    Both quilts are beautiful! Can’t wait to see the pattern in Christmas fabrics. Happy 4th of July.

    Connie, I hate to tell you this, but none of your pictures came up on your email. Sorry. Sandy

    Black or white – both are outstanding.
    Thanks for sharing these wonderful quilt designs.
    Rusty obviously loves posing with your quilts.

  4. The drama of the black background and the innocence of the white are beautiful. I like both.

  5. Love both version but REALLY LOVE the black background – stunning! and thank Rusty for giving it that extra pizzazz! Thanks!!!! (Love to see it in other background colors too!)

  6. They’re both beautiful. I love seeing them hanging together like that.

  7. Lorena Boutin says:

    This quilt is beautiful in black or white and as usual ai love seeing Rusty.

  8. I thought I would like the white background the best, however seeing the black, I like it better. It shows off the colors and they look more vibrant with the black. The black background also mimics Amish quilts that sometimes have black backgrounds. All told, they are both beautiful.
    Rusty is such a good poser & even “smiles” for the camera.

    1. Thanks Beverly, I actually like the black version the best also! I’ll let Rusty know you thought he did a good job!

  9. Well, I definitely like the black version better. Well done!
    How wide would it be if you added another vertical row of blocks?

    1. Another row of flying geese would make it 66″ wide, I would probably also add another solid row if I was doing this.
