I was on a roll this weekend! My second Sisters' Ten BOM (block of the month) quilt, made last year through a very thorough and helpful BOM at Gen X Quilters, is finally on its way to completion. For months the blocks and sashing sat in a plastic tin - no more! You know when you get the urge to work on something? Yep.
This quilt is special to me (left in picture^^) because I already made a similar one for my sister (in her colors) (right in picture). This one is for me. I'll be sharing a bit more about that when its done and we take pictures of both quilts together! Hopefully this spring!
This one shows the colors a bit better. I used Kona Medium Gray as the background, and a palette of my favorite sunset colors (purple, red, red-orange, and orange). The scrappy strips of colored fabric (in the negative space) are my own addition to the BOM quilt; I also added them to Marisa's quilt.
Mike and I saw the stained glass effect in this picture, and he suggested that we tape the quilt up against the window. Thrilled with the results (thanks, sweetie!):
I want to do this with all of my quilt tops now! Like, ALL of them. Also, I didn't press the middle sashings yet, so I bet it would look even cooler when neatly pressed. :)
Hope you got to spend some time outside, too! We waited a little too long (too much food) to get the *best* natural light pictures, but that's okay (plus, there's always the final photoshoot).
