I wanted something new for my couch in the living room--the ones that were there were 1) from classes, and so not my best work, yet everyone sees them and 2) at 48" x 48" a little short for napping, either shoulders or feet were cold.
The fabric is ADORNit Capri, and the background is french general. I got the fabrics at Chinook Fabrics in High River, on a shopping trip with my friends. It was fun, and I wound up with a different fabric selection than I had first envisioned--I had gone in looking for a quilt with a black background, probably because I love this one that Colleen made so much.
Here's the unquilted view for comparison
I had a lot of fun quilting this, using a variety of free motion designs, to keep things interesting, and I used a template for a few of them, some designs were inspired by the fabric. I was able to keep the path continuous, with a few exceptions.
One of the effects of the quilting that I really liked, is that from the front I see triangles, and from the back I see hexagons on this luscious cuddle backing.
for those who like the details: Approx 54x70, Hobbs 80/20, Glide Pearl thread. Pattern by Jaybird Quilts.
