Home! Sweet Home! April has been such a crazy busy month with travel, TEACHING CLASSES AT SEWTOPIA, CHICAGO! (the most amazing experience yet in my quilting journey, and I hope to have some photos to share with you soon), long haul flights and now a lingering dose of jet lag.
It does feel good to be back in my "normal" work space, playing with fabric, sewing and quilting. This quilt top was ready for basting and quilting (see the work in progress blog post here), and is a variation of my Color Wheel Block Pattern. The original Color Wheel Quilt was made using only solid fabric and I really wanted to see this design made with printed fabrics, including a low volume background.
I have quilted this quilt with an overall 2 inch grid of edge to edge intersecting straight lines; first by ditch stitching the vertical and horizontal seam lines, then stitching evenly spaced lines in between using a quilting guide attached to the walking foot.
For the back of the quilt I have used a single fabric from the Cookie Book collection by Kim Kight for Cotton + Steel. This small scale floral print on a pink background is one of my favorite prints from the latest Cotton + Steel fabric release. Needless to say I have yardage on hand and was a perfect match for this quilt top.
Of course I couldn't resist binding the quilt with my signature black and white stripe binding fabric by Timeless Treasures.
