I'd previously posted about this quilt while it was in progress, but never had a full reveal until now. Linking up in the Large Quilt Category for my first entry.
Introducing my Kaleidoscope Quilt!
It's about 70" x 60" and perfect for snuggling under with a movie. I chose orange, raspberry & grey fabrics from my stash planning to color the blocks in an alternate layout. Momm was inspired to make one too so we made twin kaleidoscopes - Momm's is orange, blue & grey. We traded some orange & grey fabrics so we have bits of the other in our quilt. :) Mine doesn't have a name yet because it is a twin and it's waiting for Momm to finish quilting hers. (go Momm!)
I quilted it on my Janome machine and it was really smooth going to get the back & forth lines in the grey background. I had movies and some Firefly to keep me company while quilting and now it has some awesome texture and drape!
I used warm & white batting which I love, Aurifil thread to piece & quilt it. The backing is this fun bunting/scallop print from Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie & Camille - it went so well with the colors on the front without being too loud. I wanted the binding to contrast the colors and chose an aqua Sketch print.
Momm's quilt has a fun raspberry Kaffe print as the backing and a raspberry sketch print for the binding. See - twins! If you like what you see - become a follower over there on the right or leave a comment. Be sure to check out the other entrants and get inspired!
