Bold and beautiful summer time quilt, would love the pattern. Maybe the fabric makes it look complicated but it's really eyecatching, Congrats.
Slus answered:
Pattern is by Julee Coffman. I don't remember the name of the pattern and can't find it in my sewing room. I bought at Santa Fe Quilting. I'm sure they can help you, if you describe it.
maggiesc asked:
I bought this fabric and plan to make a similar quilt, could you tell me what color thread you quilted with, this has me stumped.
Slus answered:
I used a lot of different colors of Superior King Tut verigated thread. For example: green verigated on green areas, verigated blue on Blue areas, etc.... Hope that helps.
