This was a fun quick quilt, I started playing with the strips of dark patches, then thought they would look good paired with light low volume strips... made all the blocks, then stitched in the words (all positive affirmations), sewed the blocks together, paired it with the backing...etc etc and a quilt! Listed it in my shop yesterday and it sold! Happy Dance.
Improv quilt. kinda wild. kinda fun. very bright and un-planned. It is a healing quilt with positive affirmations stitched on the black strips in the quilt, and bible verses stitched around the border.
I so liked making this design, I have at least 3 more quilts in mind that would be similar. I've seen it (or similar) called Chinese Lantern, Japanese Lantern, Modern Squash blossom, and Delectable Mountain quilt block. My first exposure was seeing a quilt by (the very talented)Joleneover at Blue elephant stitches and I was so inspired.
Next up on the frame this morning is a simple equilateral triangle quilt with gray and black with a touch of wine. A masculine quilt for a son who asked for gray and black... I begged to put an accent color in.
I have the week off work and lots of quilting plans!
Then... this one (shown before) is trimmed up and on the design wall for review! 2015 is almost here.
