This was made using a jelly roll of Kona's New Bright Palette, a few more strips for the rainbow from my stash and some Kona Charcoal.
The quilting is straight-line like Mod 1600, but I added some wavy lines in some of the blue strips. Still love the fact that it looks quilted every 1/2" on the front, but when you flip it over, there are skipped lines. I don't know why, but little surprises like that make me smile. It's quilted with 50 wt. Aurifil 2630 on top (perfect match for Kona Charcoal!) and 2021 on the back. Yum!
The back uses the IKEA Numbers fabric paired with some good ole Cape Breton tartan. You'll be seeing a lot more of the Numbers fabric for my backings as I just snagged a bolt of it. Why a bolt? Well, it's been...wait for it...discontinued! Gasp! Thanks for the heads up, Katy.
- Do not assume that all the strips coming out of a jelly roll are the same length. This strip quilt would have been easier to keep square if I'd cut all the strips to the same size before sewing them together. I ended up cutting a lot away from the edges because I just sewed them all the strips together without checking their lengths.
- Taking photos on the Hornblower by the Falls is wet. Very wet. ;) My family is getting used to me bringing quilts along to get photos at interesting places. We'll see how long that acceptance lasts. LOL! Here are some of the outtakes:
Finished Size: 80" x 91"
Batting: Hobbs Heirloom
