This is Part 2 of a custom order (see all of the details of Part 1 here). My customer's brief was simple enough; two quilts for teenage girls ~ sisters, happy and colorful, but not the same. Other than that I was given full creative license, which truly is the most wonderful and uninhibited way to work for a customer.
I love that these quilts are so obviously a set and have a certain RPQ look about them, and yet they are so different, readily distinguishable by their color palettes.
Instead of outlining the seam lines I have quilted this second quilt with a cross-hatch; stitching diagonal lines from edge to edge through each of the squares in both directions.
I could not resist a black and white stripe binding for this second quilt! This striped fabric never fails to please the eye. I am not sure if there is another fabric that works wonders for almost any quilt edge quite like this one.
Ready for shipping!
I am already pondering my next project ...
