I have finished my Pantone Quilt Challenge quilt. This mini quilt really allowed me to explore a couple of themes:
- A color study with Radiant Orchid, where I used shades of Radiant orchid as sashing and across the diagonal from top left to bottom right. The whole clover sunshine line by Alison Glass offered great radiant orchid like prints and great complementary colors.
- A theme study for Borders and Lines; after reading Quilting: Color + Lines by Yoshiko Jinzenji, I thought this would be a great opportunity to explore this topic with fiber.
This quilt is all appliqué, which was my first time using this technique. I really enjoyed it. I had a hard times with a couple of decisions:
After great feedback from my IG friends (thank you), I chose no thick borders, and I did go with the darker binding.
