This swap challenged me. My partner likes improv...one of my least favourite techniques. But luckily, he likes solids and geometric shapes.
But where to start? I borrowed Quilting Modern from Jenn @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge. I decided on a variation of the pattern Tipsy City Quilt.
Here is my 19-inch version:
I used the following Kona colours: Geranium, Turquoise, School Bus, Emerald, Canary, Purple, Kiwi, Jamaica, and Dark Violet for the background.
I even included some curved piecing. I was definitely out of my comfort zone with both improv and curved piecing. Wavy line quilting in purple variegated thread -- I tried to follow the curves as best I could.
I didn't have enough Jamaica for the binding, so I added a section of background Dark Violet.
This was a great experience. I hope my partner likes it.
If you have a finish this week, here's your chance to share it with everyone:
