W.I.P. Wednesday - Texture solids quilt

I am really excited to get this far. This quilt has been the longest time I quilted on the long arm. 3 trips to Bits N Pieces, each consisting of 3~ hours at a time. So total of 9 to 10 hours of quilting. Lot of firsts in this quilt. The quilting is 1/2inch apart and I used the rulers for all the colored area in the quilt except for light blue block which I quilted at home on the HSM/DSM. For the white background, I just winged it and did free motion quilting square spirals design. It just seemed easier to do that in the beginner before getting comfortable with the long-arm ruler and its faster too ;).

Here are some pictures of the quilt.
Textured Solid Quilt - thinking of renaming to "Color Splash"




The original quilt pattern from Quilting Modern book was called "Shattered" and Jacquie mentioned that she was upset about an incident and wanted to create a quilt. Whereas my inspiration of this quilt was on a happy note. Hence, naming it as "Color Splash". Any other names you can think of?
Next get the binding on and get it ready for showcasing :-). I am absolutely thrilled with this quilt. Love every single aspect of this quilt.

The fabrics and quilting was sponsored by Bits N Pieces . So, if you happen to be shopping there you might get to see it displayed hopefully in April :-). I am so excited.

Now linking up to Lee's Freshly Pieced blog.

Happy Quilting!
