It was time to make Kelly a new quilt since she had one of my very first attempts. The brief from her was jewel like colours with no brown or other muddy shades. Hmm. I saw a pinwheel quilt that I really liked, so the type of block was decided.
Initially I thought that the four colours would look good separated into each corner with just a few blending into each other when they met, like a colour wave. But it looked a bit rainbow like, so I tried mixing it up and Kelly preferred that.
The blocks are 3″, 6″ and 9″ in size. They aren’t lined up in straight lines, so sewing then together was a challenge and meant some ‘inserting’ corners. It was a challenge but Kelly loves the result and I enjoyed making it.
The phlox flower was the inspiration for the all over quilting. The dark grey cotton toned the bright colours down a bit.
