Bloggers Quilt Festival: Succulent

I have had the great opportunity to participate in Quilt Design a Day, and share some of those designs as tutorials on Sew Mama Sew. My favorite project so far is my design “Succulent” (tutorial to make this quilt can be found here).

This color palette (that was supplied by design seeds) was so far out my comfort zone which made this so appealing.

My first attempt of quilting did not go so well…

The second time was much better and complements the quilt so well. It has some straight line quilting with a focus on the middle intersecting lines. These I quilted in a peachy color and sewed both the vertical and horizontal lines.

    Beautiful quilt! I really like that you take your QDADs and actually make them! The color pallet is out of my comfort zone too but so striking. And the quilting is perfect! I have piles of thread like that at my house too 😉 Such a pain but so worth it in the end!
