I figured I may as well enter a quilt of two, just for fun! Opal is entered in the MODERN Quilt Category.
50" x 64"
This quilt is named after my Grama Opal. Which is also a big part of 'Twiggy & Opal' the name of my Etsy Shop and my blog. She always said to me 'Jayne, your thin as a twig'! And viola! A name is born including a loving tribute to my Grama!
This quilt shows the varying colors against a light background...just like the semi-precious Opal stone.
I used a beautiful bundle of Shot Cottons for the blocks. The colors are amazing! From the lightest of pink to a dark plum and everything in between. The background is Kona Shadow ~ the perfect shade and lightness to bring out the delicate colors!
I went CRAZY with the quilting! After dividing the quilt in 4 sections, I machine quilted super dense organic lines in a Log Cabin type design. There are about six different thread colors in there.
This is the back. I couldn't let those test blocks go to waste, so I incorporated them in the back using Kona Pewter and Iron
