It is finished! My quilt for the Scrap Quilt Contest is completely done – quilted and bound! I am beyond excited about it and I can’t wait to hear what you all think! Thank you so much Shannon from Fabrics N Quilts for putting this challenge out there! I’ve had this quilt in my mind for awhile now – it was time for it to come out! If it weren’t for this challenge – I’m not sure if it would have happened. This is exactly why I host Project Quilting each year. You never know what challenge is going to kick start one of your best quilts ever…
I’m super happy with how it turned out! The only thing I would change ‘if” I were to do one again would to make the ‘blue’ section (left middle in this picture) with darker blues. It almost blends too much with my turquoise portion. Don’t get me wrong – I am still beyond in love with this quilt…but there’s always room to improve and sometimes you don’t see it until you step back from a project and just let it ‘sit’ for a bit.
I really love how that the quilt looks totally different depending on which angle you look at it.Here’s a closer look at the machine quilting done by Barb Raisbeck of Quilts by Barb. All I asked for when I sent her was, “modern”. She decided on the perfect pattern – lime green circles of different sizes all over the quilt top. In certain colors, the lime green thread blends and in other colors it contrasts nicely. It creates yet another aspect of depth to the quilt.
This turned out to be one of those quilts that you can look at for a long time and see something different each time.
So…it’s your turn – what do you think? (I can take it…)
