This little quilt was an experiment with colors and my Casual Link Block (Heavy Metal blog post).
Because this was a small quilt, I knew I could go with with something a little more challenging. It would be easy to maneuver. Twisting, turning and shoving wasn't going to be much of a problem.
Geometric. Straight lines. Thinking the logical choice to start was the center, I pulled out the Hera marker and my ruler. With a semi-basic plan I picked points and connected the dots. Over and over again. Did it need more, should I go here? All done as I went.
My mom use to make paper boats and hats out of newspaper for my kids when they were little. This section reminded me so much of her and transported me back in time! I can't lie, it made me sad and homesick a little bit!
I really love how all the quilting turned out. I wish I could do this on my large quilt, but I'm afraid I would go crazy!
I used coordinating thread on the blue and chartreuse sections, which especially show up on the back.

I have to say I couldn't be more pleased with the quilting!! Sometimes you just gotta go with it...color, fabric, quilting.
