bits of color

I finished the binding on this quilt last night and immediately threw it in the wash to let it get nice and soft and crinkly (to be honest, I also wanted a toasty, fresh out of the dryer quilt to lay under while watching Thursday night tv!)

I love the modern, simple look of this one. It uses tons of white, with little strips of colored fabrics. I used up more scraps to make this one, so the size of the strips varied based on what size scraps I had available. I wanted randomly placed strips of color, and I think it turned out just as I had imagined it.

For the back, I pieced together one long strip of scraps, and placed it vertically off-center.

It’s bound with polka dotted fabric (of course!). I like this darker purple Anna Maria Horner fabric with raspberry colored dots.I love a dark binding, especially on a quilt with a lot of white.

This quilt is the largest I’ve made (the largest I’ve actually finished, that is!), measuring about 55″ x 70″.
