Project Quilting Season 7 Challenge 4: I need a vacation

20 02 2016

I saw the pattern this AM on Quilting Arts and watch the show repeat this evening as I was finishing up.

I really can’t say much about this quilt and how it fits the challenge, because it’s a surprise. But it does. Really. The pattern is simple and easy, but fun and made a cute little quilt.

The fabric line was created by Kim Schaefer for Andover Fabrics, Pattern 5291  and it has cozy flannel on the back.

To make it especially thready, I tried raw edge applique and raw edge binding, plus a round in the washer.

Add a Deep Thought ala Jack Handy, and we have another completed Project Quilting challenge.
Within scope.
On time.
Under budget.

Completed size: 17 x 17″

Aside for the artsy fun with fabric, my obsession with quilting is about the process of making order out of chaos, creating structure for the randomness, bringing unrelated pieces together to design geometric soul.
Thread is the tool that connects, brings it all together, makes it possible, adds the color, creates the fabric itself.
Thread is the quilt love.
