I am so excited to show you all my latest quilt finish. But I do need help picking out a name so let me know if you think of something while you're looking at the pictures.
I met Alison Glass at Quiltcon and talked to her a little about her upcoming lines which she had some sneak peaks of at one of her demo talks. I knew right away that I loved Ex-Libris and had to make something with it. Alison was kind enough to send me some advance yardage to make this guy. She wanted something made with the white Art Theory panel which is amazing. It is so, so, so pretty you guys.
I got the idea to cut it up like pie pieces and radiate them out from a full center circle section. I made a few tweaks as I went so I was able to incorporate a few more prints from the line. My friend Kristen gave me the great idea to use the tan chambray as an outline and I think that gave it just the right touch of contrast.
This design gave me a ton of negative space to play around with the quilting and I had a great time with that. I'll show more of the different sections later this week. Right now I'm off to finish hand-sewing the binding so I can send it off to Minnesota for Alison's schoolhouse presentation. I must really like this quilt - I hate hand sewing with a passion.
