The Technicolor quilt
After all the lovely feedback I got yesterday about the Technicolor quilt, I had a surge of energy to bind it and finish it once and for all.
For those who don’t know the whole story, this quilt was made as a sample for Rock Paper Scissors using a mini jelly roll of ombre fabric from the Simply Color line and about two yards of Kona Bone. The binding is Kona Medium Grey. I was inspired by Amy Smart’s ombre quilts and Alissa Haight Carlton’s Pink Greater Than.
I wrote a tutorial (my first! please give feedback if you use it) when the top was displayed in the store. It hung out there for a few months until I quilted and bound it this week.
I have always wanted to do an outdoor photo shoot for a quilt, so it was a lot of fun taking these pictures. Thanks for taking the time to check them out.
(Doesn’t it look like glare on the quilt? That’s the ombre. This fabric is so inspiring.)
Full disclosure: Beth from Rock Paper Scissors gave me the fabric used in this quilt to make a sample for her store and show what can be done with a junior jelly roll.
You did it. You totally made one of those quilts that either side could really be the front. The back is solid summer – it’s The Go-Gos. The front could be sold as an advert to Skittles….cuddle the rainbow? I love it.
I think I’ll frame this comment and put it near my sewing space. Thank you so much.
Congrats on the finish – I love the backing and the way the quilted spirals pop!
