53" x 70"
This quilt sat patiently off to the side waiting for me to finish other pressing matters. With its number up next, I needed to figure out how it would be quilted. It's always a challenge!
I'm calling this quilting Circuit Board. Or maybe Minimalist Circuit Board. Since I only did vertical lines leaving out all the other crazy things a real circuit board has!
The center panel I kept even more simple. Straight vertical lines. I could have done so much more, something different, but decided to keep it clean. Simple. Uncomplicated. No frills.
With that in mind, I did spruce up the back! The front had more than enough white. I pulled four coordinating colors, cut 16" squares and staggered them down the back. It's nice to jazz up a plain white back!
There is something calming about this one. The cool colors remind me of water. The gentle lapping of waves, the flow of the tide or the rush of a river. Water soothes and calms me.
