A Color Splash Quilt - The Finished Quilt

A Color Splash Quilt | Red Pepper Quilts 2016

I am so in love with these bright colors! This quilt has turned out great and it has made my day to be able to share a whole lot of photos with you here. I so wish you could see (and touch) the actual quilt for when you reduce the a quilt to a 10 inch square - or smaller still when viewing on a device - I do think that the impact is not the same, and I repeatedly hear from my customers that the actual quilt is even better than the photos! That's always nice to hear.

I think you may already know how much I love the fabrics that I have used to make this quilt. Many are from my stash of Japanese import fabrics by popular Japanese designers like Suzuko Koseki and Atsuko Matsuyuama, but also included are prints by Cotton + Steel and stash basics like dots, stripes, gingham, and small scale prints in a range of bold colors.

To finish this quilt I have given it my usual backing and binding fabric treatment ~ newsprint fabric from the Story Collection by Carrie Bloomston for the backing fabric with black/white stripe fabric by Timeless Treasures for binding:

  1. It came out beautiful! You are right about seeing and handling it in person. I always Oooh and aaah at pictures, but when I visit bloggers in their homes or go to our little quilt shows, there is such a significant difference! They become bigger than life!

  7. Rita, I just love it!
    Bright colors are me and Color Splash is jam packed. I have some panel prints w/kitties and I love the 1/2 window boxes you did on the fussy cut blocks and all around.
