Thank you! Thank you! What a wonderful response to the Chaos Quilt top featured in yesterday's Wordless Wednesday post. I think I need to add some words though.
This quilt top is made from Kaffe Fasset shot cottons, as well as Kaffe's checks and stripes. I have tried to source more of the colorful checks and stripes without success. It seems they have been discontinued and replaced with a new range of checks and stripes fabrics.
The pattern that I used for this quilt is from the Rowan book - A Colorful Journey (also now difficult to source!). The quilt pattern in the book is called Co-Ordinated Chaos. I have used my own color palette, substituting the red/orange fabrics with blues and greens, and is perhaps a little less coordinated, hence the name.

The quilt top that I have made measures 58 inches x 44 inches, and has been basted. I have also started quilting it.
This quilt top is really striking and colorful, but was desperately in need of some added texture. I am quilting it with straight lines (using a walking foot), both horizontally and vertically, clustered close together.
