If you were trying to describe the word Indelible, some of the synonyms you will come across include lasting, enduring, memorable, or unforgettable. These are definitely words that I used to describe this amazing fabric line from Katarina Rocella, the first one that introduced her too me and it is still one of my all time favourite fabric lines. This is the second quilt that I have made from this fabric, including my version of Pacific from John Q Adams’ book Beyond Neutral: Quilts Inspired by Nature’s Elements, posted about HERE.
This quilt is from my favourite overseas quilting magazine, Love Patchwork and Quilting.
This beautful quilt is designed by my good friend Keera Job of Live.Love.Sew. You have seen plenty of her quilts around the Juicy Quilting studio as I have been her longarm quilter for some time. I had always earmarked this quilt for a future project and it took me some time to put it all together, using mainly the offcuts of my Pacific quilt. In the end I only needed to buy a couple of extra quarter metres.
I chose a lovely soft silver grey for the background fabric, which works really well with the palette of rich plum, teal and orange as well as grey and mustard. You may notice if you refer back to the original quilt that I expanded it from the original rectangular quilt shape to a square by simply adding in 2 more blocks. I’m a sucker for my square quilts, and the minimum size I like to make these days is 70″ which is where this one turned out.
So this wasn’t “quite” a design wall Wednesday, however I’m claiming it because the quilt had it’s final 2 long joining seams finished and taken off the wall on Monday. Tuesday I spent a couple of hours piecing a striking back for it. Now it’s measured, folded and carefully put away in the queue ready for quilting. There are even 2 binding options all ready to be added when it’s ready for finishing off.
It certainly feels good to take a long term WIP that was stalled in the cutting process for a long time, and to finally put it in the queue and prepare for my favourite part of the process!
Question for you all, would because this quilt started off being made from offcuts of a fat quarter bundle and a previous quilt, could it be classified as a scrap quilt?
