Finally decided to get on with some quilting. Yay!!!
I'm not going to fiddle with these pictures anymore. For some reason they loaded sideways. Figure I will just go with it and get this post done before I lose focus again:)
(Sorry for the sideways views.)
I got the inspiration for this quilt while laying under the trees staring up at the sky on a picnic last year with the Old Man. I know that green and blue aren't supposed to go together in a quilt, but I don't care much for color rules:)
I went geometric with it even though the inspiration was organic because looking up I could see the patterns randomness created.
It took me almost a full season to finally find a proper backing for it. I was originally piecing the back out of left over strips from the front, but it just wasn't working. I wondered over to Joann's and happened upon a sale. I spotted the fabric and knew it was perfect. Took what was on the bolt (5 yards + a remnant). Very happy with my choice. It modernizes the front...I've been collecting this fabric for years. I see all the "modern" quilt fabrics and think to myself...."There's no way I can give up my stash (too much $$ invested), but how to I bring my quilts up to the times?" Backings!!
Any who....winding down here:) I really hope to do this more often (quilt + blog). It's been ages since I've been consistent with any of my creative stuff.
