Now that that is out of the way, lets talk quilts!
Thinking 'outside the box' is always a goal of mine when designing quilts. This quilt became just that, along with a huge burst of 'look at me' color!
|48" x 68"|
I started this quilt months ago with a very loose concept in mind. I tend to do that a lot. I fly by the seat of my pants! This was kind of a three part quilt. Part one began with a block idea. Neutral background with 1/4" stripes in varying color tones. I really love how they turned out.
Part two was deciding how to layout and arrange the bright solids. Once the whole ROYGBIV was figured out, I thought the solid panels needed a little boost of something. By adding the randomly placed squares, along with staggering the panels this part came together rather easily!
The last part was the left side of the quilt. I wanted a neutral background, but knew it needed a little extra boost. Which brought me to the stripe! Since this was all about 'thnking outside the box', I flipped the yellow panel to create some crazy visual interest!
This is the back. Rarely do I choose a solid backing and this was no exception! It called for it even before I finished.
I decided to use two different quilting designs. One side is an abstract box and the other is a broken-line.
This one makes me want to do it all over again! Maybe one day I will too! Thank you for stopping by!
