My (late) Throwback Thursday project is this Tangerine cool aid quilt from years past. I had collected several fat quarters of turquoise and orange fabric for a few years. My husband had picked up a few on a business trip to Ohio (first quilty gift).
I started piecing this in 2012 when Jeni from In Color Order had a HST BOM. I made most of the blocks at that time. About a year later, I made a few more and came up with a layout with lots of negative space. I wanted to practice some nice negative space quilting but that never happened. In 2016, I sent it out to a long-arm quilter.
I gifted this to my great-aunt, Pushpa, for her 80th birthday. She is the consummate artist in our family – very creative and resourceful in making arts and crafts with whatever she can find. I know she treasures and uses this quilt everyday. This was quilted with an edge to edge design by Geeta Mehta of Fabulous Quilting.
My one monthly goal for August is to quilt and finish this black & white & red quilt top. The pattern is split personality from the book Modern Quilt Perspectives: 12 Patterns for Meaningful Quilts by Thomas Knauer. This is also a gift for someone. More about the quilt with my finish post. This was another completely “unplanned” projects. I was looking through my quilt books for a quick project/idea and this took hold of me. It was not quick 🙂
Finally, here are my fabric choices for the Modern Plus QAL by Cheryl and Paige. Green outer background, light grey inner background, the mottled hot pink for the large plus and bits of other pinks for everything else. I may add a splash of turquoise or orange if I feel it need some variety. All fabric from my stash.
