Color Blocked

Ta Da!

A finish for Friday!

I cut 5″ x 10″ rectangles from leftover Kona solids for a  38″ square quilt.

I quilted it, by machine, at one inch intervals treating each cube as an individual unit, though I was able to continuous quilt it. I used a tan-colored thread because…. I could? My leftover Bubbles binding worked beautifully.

I could not be happier with the fabric I happened upon for the backing. I always struggle with what to use. And since I knew I would be attempting straight line, machine quilting, I knew I wanted a print. And since the quilt was only one width wide, this made for a super quick and easy backing, no piecing needed. This fabric is The Bee’s Knees by Terrie Manget for Free Spirit in teal. It coordinates beautifully with all the different Kona solids I chose. I probably should have grabbed a bolt of this one!

Have a great weekend!

  3. You were able to continuous quilt it? What’s the secret? Would love to know how you approached it.
