80 x 80
The blocks and layout were all designed last year by Sophie of Block Lotto in what she called a Modern Modular Quilt Along (MOD MOD QAL). (The very talented Sophie also blogs at Sophie Junction).
Every month at Block Lotto there is a block of the month. Last year Sophie would tell us how many of each block we needed for our sampler and at the end of the month she would show us where in the overall layout our blocks would be positioned. When I would see any of the 16 modules completed I would go ahead and sew blocks in the module together, then module to module, column to column always hoping the colors would be evenly distributed.
Last year's Block Lotto blocks were either 7 inch square, 7 x 14 or 14 inch square. I chose to make my blocks in complementary colors and used scraps and stash (and some fun and weird fabrics).
The blocks were also geometric and varied from very easy to challenging.
I did big stitch hand quilting with red, green, blue, orange, yellow and purple perle cotton #8.
And I quilted blocks in different ways...sometimes with stencils and sometimes following the lines of the blocks.
I've tried to get a pic of the crinkly goodness of Wild Thing now that it has been washed and dried.
But I can't get a picture that shows you how very soft Wild Thing happens to be.
This was my goal (#2) for
I used solid colors red, green, blue, orange, yellow and purple for the binding. (Wish the blue had been a little brighter but...)
And at the end of the month I will link up to Julie's Binding Blitz.
For the back I used a solid green wide backing so the big stitching would show up since it wasn't always apparent in some of those wild fabrics.
I'm now going to go Whoop, Whoop it up at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
And since this UFO, WIP or what-have-you is now finished I'm linking up to
