wonky wild world quilt

I’m so excited to show you a finished quilt! I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Jenean Morrison again, this time using her newest line of fabric, Wild World. This new line is a gorgeous mix of florals and fun geometric shapes in a really lovely softer color palette. You can read more about her inspiration for this line here.

I thought that the smaller scale designs would lend themselves well in a string quilt, and together we decided that a quilt similar to my original wonky string quilt would work well.

I used 11″ squares this time so as to show off larger pieces of Jenean’s fabrics. I initially couldn’t decide what solid color to use for the center strings.

I considered white and also gray, but since I’ve used both in the past, I decided to go with this warm stone color, which I think is a great compliment to these prints.

(as always, a big thanks to Morgan who didn’t even complain (much!) about having to climb onto these two rocks in the middle of the river so I could get this shot!)

For the backing I went with Kona Artichoke, which is one of my favorites. And of course, for a little something fun on the back, I pieced together a couple small striped sections using a few of the leftover prints.

This quilt will be displayed in Jenean’s booth at Quilt Market. If you’ll be attending this year, be sure to stop by booth #729 to say hi and take a closer look at this great new line!

And now, a little something for you! I have several pieces and smaller scraps of these fabrics left over, and Jenean has generously offered them to one of you!

Just leave a comment here and I’ll pick a winner tomorrow. If you’d like, you could tell me what you’re working on this week, or perhaps a favorite Fall activity! (me, I love traveling through small towns in VT to check out the foliage!)

Comments are now closed. I’ll select and post a winner shortly!
