A completed quilt!
This quilt was made from 238 unique charm squares exchanged in a large color wheel swap. I paired complementary colors to create the half-square triangles and arranged them in a diamond pattern using the warms and cools as rows. (Which is the warm and which is the cool when you pair red-violet with green-yellow?--I let the surrounding colors define those pairs.)
I needed something colorful and large scale for the backing. This is La Paloma from Alexander Henry. I love that there are birds in this print.
Bound in a purple-y print from South Seas Fabrics.
Free-motion quilted by me on my li'l ol' domestic machine. This post describes the quilting in more detail.
Wrinkled well in the dryer . . . soft and cuddly.
Finished Size: 56" x 68"
