It started of with just a photo of a spectacular wall decoration at a restaurant and ended with a quilt that resides now on my sofa and that keeps making me break out in a wild grin whenever I my eyes fall on it.
'Sketch' is such a riot of colour and perfect for this less than ideal summer. It measures around the 60" inch mark square.
I debated long about what to do for the back and finally settled on 'Uopia' from Free Spirit that I have had in my stash a long time waiting for something special. The colour fits perfectly with the turquoise and deep purple in the flowers as both are mirrored somewhere on the front.
The quilting is rather predictably crosshatch along the coloured strips but I quilted into the white squares as I wanted generous quilting and also just because I fancied it.
The white squares are 'Kona Snow' and the coloured strips are totally randomly chosen from my solids scrap bin.
The obvious choice for the binding would have been a scrappy one but I didn't much fancied the obvious so went for a stripy number in black and white which I think is the icing of the cake so to say.
And I am already on to the next quilt. Clearly the enforced break did do much good for the creative juices.
I hope your creative juices are flowing too.
