Watercolor Quilt

This was a fun project to work on over the last few months. Last Spring I took a class with Katie Pasquini Masopust at work (best job ever!) and learned her watercolor to quilt technique. This piece is a cropped section from a watercolor 'sketch' I made by blowing the paint with a straw. I got the whole top put together in class and then it sort of sat in my quilt room while I worked on other things.

Putting it on my Q1 list for the Finish-Along helped motivate me to get this one basted, quilted & bound. I pulled out my array of Aurifil threads in 50wt and matched up spool-to-fabric using all the colors you see in the following picture! I opted to leave the white blank and quilted different Free Motion designs in each color. Lots of fun once I got going and this piece was finished in no time. I chose one of the teal prints to use as binding to complete the look. Let's link all the things: so I'm also at Finish It Up Friday!
