This quilt, Pantone Pop and its color way set off some sort of quilt making chain reaction that has been ongoing for years.
Pantone Pop was suppose to be a wedding quilt and as I was in the final stages of binding it I visited my friends. In the year it took me to work on it they had 360’ed their bedroom colors and this quilt would be the clown in the room. I learned after that from my friend Sandie that’s it’s better to categorize this type of quilt under ‘marriage quilt’ rather than ‘wedding quilt’ because that buys you quilt making the time in the best case senarios. Regardless, I made another and kept Pantone Pop for myself:)
I started crazing piecing with Pantone Pop’s leftovers and pretty soon I was forming up the lovely middle squares of the quilt above. I really was in love with this log cabin layout that we had in Quilting Modern and decided that the crazy pieced blocks where perfect for the block’s centers. Seam Ripper IPA remains to the day one of my favorite quilts in design, color, softness and process.
Leftovers from Pantone Pop were far from done , so those half square triangles that didn’t make it in ended up transformed into Psychedelic Baby. I sold this one at the first Quiltcon and missed it, but guess what? I had left overs;)
So I ran with them, did some slight modifications and made On Target. This quilt was a pain in the ass to quilt, but I love it’s design.
Done yet? Not quite. Boxed-In happened next and I’m keeping this one as my new couch quilt and workshop sample for my now favorite block to teach.
But I’m done with this color way now.
There’s a few pillows around that I’ll spare you;)
I’m off on retreat with the girlfriends. So good. I’m sure Jefe has made some behind the scenes studio work in my absence that I’ll be excited about and will share soon.
Hope your week includes a big holiday vacation at the end of it. I might not see you next Monday if I can help myself. Hope you make the most of it too;)
