This past week I have been busy with working on piecing the quilt top and also couple of backings for the "Quilts for Boston". We had a sew-in @ Quilters Way last Wednesday it was a fun night spending the wonderful ladies from BMQG
and Quilters Way
This time around I picked up some blocks and then added more negative space by making HTS using neutral fabrics(gray or white) . Here is my final outcome:
|My Second pieced quilt top for "Quilts for Boston"|
I really liked how the quilt turned out. This does have some fabrics which are not exactly yellow. When I picked up the fabric I thought it looked yellow but its more of a lime green/little bit of yellowish.
Here is my contribution to the quilt. I initial made simple big HTS but didn't like couple of blocks. So, added another small print.
|My blcoks for this quilt. The big print is from the fabric donated for "Quilts for Boston" and lime green/yellowish fabric is from my stash|
I had 6 yards of this blue Mechanical Genius by Timeless Tressure fabric which perfected worked with the colors they needed for "Quilts for Boston". So, I made two backs from my stash.
|From my stash I had these beautiful blue Mechanical Genius fabric to make 2 quilt backs(60x70)|
The below two blocks didn't make the cut. And I'm glad that I didn't include these in this quilt. I hope someone from our BMQG will transform these two blocks to look more modern.
|I got excited @Sew-in to see the big print and made these two blocks. But they didn't make it since the negative space color was too dark|
Now linking up with Lee@Freshly Pieced.
