It's been a while since I finished a new quilt. Quite a while. It was hard to know where to start when I started to feel like sewing again and had some free time. Pinterest? WIPs? Flickr? My list of "make someday" quilts?
To get back into the swing of things, I decided it was time for some pure, pressure-free fabric play. The results? A series of fabric stacks, all ready for some simple patchwork baby quilts.
It's also been a while since I focused on "just" patchwork, and I had fun with this one! It measures about 32" x 40", and is a mix of Anna Maria Horner prints from both her Pretty Potent and True Colors lines.
The color palette seems to focus on the super-girly magenta tones, but I love how these prints mix them with interesting blues and neutrals. For quilting, I kept it simple, too, with single diagonal lines.
I chose a similarly girly-but-fascinating print for the backing, and bound it with a turquoise solid to bring out the little glimpses of the same tone in many of the prints.
This quilt plays quite nicely with my reverse value mod mosaic quilt, too.
