WIP Wednesday - HST Wall Hanging

Thanks for all the suggestions on possible layouts for my HST project.  In the end, for the first row and subsequent odd-numbered rows, light to dark going left to right.  And then moving down to the even-numbered rows, light to dark going right to left.

At 32 x 40 inches, this will become a wall hanging for my sewing room.

It was difficult to arrange the colours, as some of the Kona's were very close in colour.  There are two blue-green blocks in the top row that don't really belong with either green or blue, and some of the light blue ones had a hint of violet in them.  But I'm happy because I used the Kona Sunrise charm pack and now have an interesting wall hanging for my sewing room.

My first thought is to quilt diagonally -- bottom left to top right -- on both sides of the seam.  But not sure what colour thread to use.  Would love to hear your suggestions on quilting and thread colour.

  1. Wow! Beautiful colors in a great graphic design. How about a smokey grey for the quilting?

  2. I think I'd go dark for the quilting... and I like the idea of diagonal quilting. But then again, you knew I'd say that!

  3. That is going to be a great addition to your sewing room. Love the colors.I look forward to seeing how you quilt it.

  4. Love where this is going, Anja! I like the idea of using a dark thread for quilting. Looks fabulous so far!

  5. It is lovely! Warm greetings from Montreal. :)
