I am newly home from Quilt Market. It was a good one… Was great to see so many friends again.
I had to make a quilt for the In the Beginning booth that featured all of my Modern Solids. Needless to say, it wasn’t an easy task for me to come up with a quilt that had all of the colors, but didn’t read too much like a rainbow. Here it is, hanging at Market, all finished up:
And a wider photo that shows it with the other two quilts featuring my fabrics.
Jacquie made the one next to mine and Jen the last one. They are both so so beautiful! I’m very lucky to have friends who are such talented quilters who were up for making these amazing quilts so quickly.
I don’t have many progress photos, but here’s a couple…
For the quilting I did straight line quilting across the whole face of the quilt (using the edge of my walking foot as a guide for each seam).
Then in order to accentuate the negative space, I went back and added another line between each line in the light gray.
I can’t can’t wait to keep working with my fabrics more! And I won’t have to use every single color in the next quilt! There’s definitely a certain satisfaction in sewing with your own fabrics. It’s wonderful.
