Here's a baby quilt using Elizabeth Hartman's Solar Eclipse. I took a vacation day yesterday to sew, but I was not as productive as I had hoped. But I think I got my sewjo back and then ended up sewing until midnight last night to finish this quilt.
This is a great pattern (with three different sizes), but there's too much fiddly sewing of angled seams for my liking. The quilt finishes at 32 x 32 inches, but it took six hours to piece -- and that's not including the time spent cutting the fabric and marking the angled seams.
I thought about quilting in the white to make the colours pop, but then there would have been too much space unquilted. And because I just wanted it finished, I didn't put any more thought into it and just stippled all over.
I used some Kona that I had my in my stash:
- Top Left Block - Bahama Blue, Capri, Lagoon, Cyan
- Top Right Block - Pansy, Mulberry, Bright Peri, Purple
- Bottom Left Block - Chartreuse, Kiwi, Kale, Emerald
- Bottom Right Block - Papaya, Torch, Tangerine, Flame
- Background - White
