Ok, so really I do not have a name yet for this quilt. Lines Drawn just popped into my head as I was writing this…so let’s see. I will say, this is probably one of my favorite quilt tops.
This quilt top came together fairly quickly while on our mountain vacation this week, a big woohoo for vacations. I love the lines, minimalism and complementary nature of the fabrics I choose (love the squares and colors in each).
Fabric Selection Process:
I have been stashing Karen Lewis Textiles fabric and trying to find the right project and decided I just need to do a design specifically for some of my pieces. This was it. I did play with the colored fabrics I had for a bit and decided on using Allotment in Silver, Oyster and Nautical and Kona Torch (orange stripe).
I also knew, once I finished this design that a plain white, or even a white on white fabric was not going to be enough for the background. I wanted something with some interest but not something that took away from the focus of the two lines. I immediately played around with my Yoshiko Jinzenji fabric and decided none of them worked…but there was one I had been looking at that would be perfect…I bought it and thankfully the vision was right on (that does not always happen when I buy fabric for a specific project).
Here’s a close-up of the fabrics in the quilt:
I think, I have already found a spot to hang the quilt in the house. It is in my son’s room, that is, if I can convince him to let me hang it…it doesn’t have pink it and does have one of his favorite colors orange…so there is a chance 😉
If you can think of a better name, I am open to suggestions. Linking up with Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday.
