It's that time of year again when blogging quilters get a chance to participate in a wonderful online exhibition. I am in awe of the organisation that goes into this even, all run by Amy so a big thank you is due to her.
The exhibition is a great excuse to while away a couple of hours viewing lots of work from quilters all over the world so be sure to visit and vote for your favourites when voting opens next week.
I took part in an online sew a long last winter with Leanne and fell by the wayside quite quickly. My Mod Pop quilt became an as & when quilt project but it was destined for our own bed as a summer alternative and my colours were intended to evoke a beachy feel. I managed to complete it by the end of June.
Here it is, sunbathing - those warm summer days are but a distant memory now.
The pattern was purchased from Julie and I think it looks quite retro, reminiscent of the 60s. I used stash fabrics mainly and the eagle eyed among you will see a couple of narrow blue strips - I never, I mean never, quilt whole quilts anymore - I use QAYG methods and look for ways to join using whichever QAYG technique that might suit best. For this one, I constructed three separate panels and used narrow strips to join. You can see the three section better on the back.
It measures 80" x 85", I used Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 & quilted it on my Janome 6600 using Aurifil 50wt thread in, I think colour 2021.
