Since starting my longarm business a year ago I've found much less time to sew things that I want. Luckily I love the quilt that I was able to make for myself this year, and it hangs on the wall in my studio. I'm entering it in the Two Color Quilts category.
This quilt first appeared in Issue 12 of Fat Quarterly. It's jelly-roll friendly, although I used 8 different Pure Elements by Art Gallery.
I enjoyed quilting a different pattern in each color.
The quilt measures abut 39" on each side and is certainly one of my favorites to date. =) I quilted it using my Brother 1500 on a Grace frame--this was before I got my longarm. I matched the thread colors as closely as possible and I love the effect.
The quilting created some fantastic texture on the back.
Thanks for stopping by! Thanks also to Amy for hosting the Blogger's Quilt Festival. It is such a treat to see so many wonderful creations!
