love the blues and yellows together.
I've been considering fabrics for this quilt (after going to order from Craftsy only to read message along top that they no longer have the fabrics!) & 2 different groups jumped out at me-blues & yellow seems to be on developers & my mind- this is BEAUTIFUL! I was viewing videos & watched lots regarding 'Sew Kind of Wonderful' with very prominent quilting, similar to your 2nd row down, 2nd block from right-yellow & blue (center), left of mostly blue- it looks as though that circular quilting, echoed at even distance apart- that's what I liked about that type of process. Now that I'm looking at other blocks, you have done many with very prominent quilting which prompts me to ask what type batting, threads-all details that are pertinent since I want to follow your lead. I just signed on for the course so all awaits me- any tips will be appreciated. Beautiful job! I'm so pleased also to see a quilt done that's not 'sampler looking' as I'm just not in that mood right now.
Thank you for your kind words. I am new to quilting only just starting about a year and a half ago. I took Amy Gibson's course BOM 2012 and then Leah Day's to finish. The fabric line I used is called Summer Breeze by Sentimental Studios. I did not use any other fabrics. While this line is discontinued, I found plenty of fat quarters and yardage on ebay. I'm sure there are other sources on web. I followed Leah's quilting methods with the exception of top block, left and feathering on borders. I took her suggestion and used Isacord thread and it worked beautifully though most quilt shops will tell you only cotton. I figured she would know best! I used Kona snow for my background fabric and Quilter's Dream is the only batting I use. Not sure what loft, maybe Select or Deluxe? Hope this helps! :)
beautiful job! I have a finished quilt top but haven't quilted it yet.....so afraid of the free motion quilting part. Your choice of color is spectacular!
Your quilt really caught my eye. Love the colors. Well done!
