~Love love love !!
~ So I got it together this past week and came up with this little quilt ..
I am so happy with this quilt. I have really wanted to make a solid quilt. My inspiration came to me from One Shabby Chick’s Quilting Festival entry.. I loved that quilt from the first moment I saw it.
I used all Kona cotton fabrics. I improved each color block, and after seeing all of them and studying them it came to me that they all appear to me as wonky crazy doors.. Which I love, this being a quilt for my daughter’s school Silent Auction, it fit.
~front of quilt.. light is very difficult today… I was chasing it…
~ back of quilt.. love that big block!
~ okay, maybe this is too out there, but this phrase was in my mind.. when I think of her school, the children, the faculty, the parents… their mission this is what comes to mind…
~I fought with this blanket stitch, my cranky bobbin and I was down to the last bits of thread…. but I am letting it go~
Here are af few of the “doors” ~
~the color is a bit off here, the block is not red, it is more magenta?!
ok, you get the point…
I quilted each color block in a different pattern, but I have to say my hat is off to all of ya’ll who straight line quilt, that is no easy task! It looks so simple, but it is as hard as the dickens.. Seriously not easy..
I had to back to my first love, stippling for the main body and I love the overall effect. It works for me.
Matching sham check…
one happy little helper… check check~
Enjoy your weekend!
