This is one of those projects that just popped into my head, demanding to be made. As I fell asleep one night a couple of months ago, I saw my pattern Easy Going Modern made up in an ombre arrangement.
So I went to my stash and dug around in my greys and pulled 5 shades of Kona Solids: Silver, Medium Gray, Coal and Charcoal plus Ash.
I got a bit stuck on the quilting, but I'm glad I didn't rush into anything because this curvy motif - done with two different shades of grey Aurifil 50 weight thread - really complements the right angles.
The backing is a fabulous IKEA duvet that I thrifted.
This finish was a just-for-fun one - "off-list" meaning it's not part of my Finish Along list. But I think I may be keeping this quiltie for myself because it's a nice lap size - about 56"x78".
Linking up to Finish it Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts!
Off list or not it turned out great. Isn't if fun when those flashes of inspiration happen and you just have to drop everything else and make it reality.ReplyDelete
