Here’s a quilt that’s a bit different for me, since I do like bright color.
I purchased this fat quarter bundle on a whim this fall. The colors spoke to me. The gray is pretty, but it overpowers the lights. I added Kona Azure, but that was also very strong. I knew I wanted to cut these up as little as possible, so I made 6″ HSTs with them. I wanted to arrange them in a random design across the quilt, but it looked terrible.
I finally added some more Azure and made this star.
And (surprise!) I quilted it with feathers. I used aqua Bottom Line for all the quilting, top and bottom. It is very restful and soothing, and I was sad when I had no more areas to quilt.
I backed this with an aqua cloud print. A very successful little quilt. 38″ square.
The snow makes a beautiful backdrop for quilt photos, but enough is enough. Four to six more inches tonight… Stay warm and sew, everyone!

LOL, I purchased that same bundle this fall, also on a whim. Just pulled it out a couple days ago, trying to get an of idea for it.
Love what you did, thanks for the inspiration 🙂

It’s such a calming quilt Valerie! How is your Etsy store doing?
