Here is my new quilt – “Color Your World’. The center design measures only 26” and the quilt is 34”.
This is a similar design with Windows into my World. This pattern is one of my best selling patterns and I did not expect that, because English paper piecing requires a lot of time!
So I thought to design something similar but:
– with more blocks and more colors
– more complex design
– easier and faster technique
See below the difference between the two quilts.
Fusible raw edge applique is a quick and easy technique- I made the top in a few hours.
I loved to quilt this size!!
All the fabrics are Kona cotton.
On the blocks I quilted with a light beige Aurifil 50wt thread (#2310, a beautiful neutral thread).
I paired the thread with a Jeans needle and the quilting over the fusible appliques was a lot of fun.
The quilting on the background was fun to do too.
I took the time to mark some arcs (with a transparent plastic circle template I found in a big box of CDs).
Then I filled the shapes with feathers. I love how the quilting textured the background.
I love the combination white thread+beige fabric even more.
I remember how skeptical I was about this color combination and how I changed my mind when I made this bag.
What do you think? I think the combination is subtle but still strong enough to draw your attention.
It was a pleasure to make this quilt, from start to finish.
