This quilt is a departure from what I normally do, but I woke up one morning with this design in my head so I got out my graph paper, colored pencils and calculator. I considered a few different color schemes before deciding on Kona Chartreuse and Coal.
My husband likes the back better than the front.
The back is pieced from leftovers from the top, and some other things from my stash, I don't know why, but lately I have been motivated to use what I have on hand whenever possible. I guess I feel like I need to use what I have already purchased before I buy more.
I enjoyed making this quilt, but I really LOVE sewing patchwork and there's not much of that going on here. But I am learning how big I can go on my little Bernina and still quilt it myself. Of course, the vertical lines are pretty simple to do on a home machine. And this is just a throw size.
And here's the tree all decorated and ready for gifts to go underneath. Looks like gift wrapping is in my immediate future.
What have you been up to this weekend?
