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!
And for all those who have asked, I did a color match with the 2012 color card to show you the colors I used. I would have to assume these were from the Classic” Palette”, as far as I know, this was the only palette there was at the time!
