I am so pleased to share this completed quilt today! I showed you a few of the blocks a number of weeks ago. I designed my own paper pieced pattern for this quilt and pieced it using 5 shades of Kona quilting cottons.
I scattering the colors rather randomly while piecing, intentionally favoring the peaches over the greys.
I really love the colors in this quilt; they are most accurately represented in this photo. They are so soothing and at the same time fresh and uplifting. I worked on this quilt while waiting for spring to arrive here in New England and I think that the colors were just right for that.
I chose to quilt using straight lines and three shades of Aurifil 50 weight thread because the vertical rows of stitching work well with the vertical orientation of the triangles. As you can see in this detail, I quilted with my lines spaced 1/4″ to 1/2″ apart.
I used one of the prints from Art Gallery Fabrics’ Maker collection for the backing along with bits of leftover solids from the front. And I bound the quilt in the background fabric color, Kona Light Flesh…an awful sounding name for a pretty color! The finished quilt measures 48″ x 60.” My mom suggested the name, Pointed Statement, which seems just perfect.
I am planning on offering this pattern for sale soon. It’s in the works!
