Ah, Kona Solids, what would my fabric stash be without you? Prints are great, but I am loving solids. You can really create something that is bold and very simple, yet has a great effect.
I enjoyed making the bar graph quilts previously and had some of the green, blue, yellow, and orange left over. I knew I wanted to make another baby boy quilt, but wasn’t sure what I was going do. There was some fabric in my stash that I could have used, but it wasn’t the correct one.
On a Friday afternoon I went to Crimson Tate as I was out running errands. Not that I needed more fabric, I just needed inspiration that day. While looking over her wonderful fabric selection I found this. Not what I would normally gravitate towards, but it would work with a the solids I had stashed away at home.
The design came to me while standing in the store. Add gray with my solids and this may work for the back. I rushed off to the house to get to work. I had plenty of projects already started, but one more wouldn’t hurt.
I finished this week after a fight with myself about the binding. I REALLY wanted to do brown originally. Had it cut and ready to add and paniced. It did not look right. Back to my stash of solids and I found a wonderful green. Much better.
The record breaking crowd at the Indianapolis Modern Quilt Guild meeting got to see a sneak peek off the design wall with the quilting.
Here is the completed quilt, ready for a new home.
Love the way it turned out what can be created when you just play.
