Trapezoids at Work – Finished Quilt!

Trapezoids at work!  Quilted and bound…

I did a tutorial for this quilt when I finished piecing the top.  It can be found HERE.

I wanted the “columns” of trapezoids to alternate between Business Fabric (texty prints, grids, organized dot prints, a lot of Architextures) and neutral solids, with a couple of color splashes for fun.

The inspiration was how my mind floats around while I work.  There are periods of focus and periods of distraction, dreaming, spacing-out…  You know how it goes!

I carried that idea into the quilting.  Dense linear quilting for the WORK areas, and floaty circular quilting for the dreaming spaces.

A couple of rings of pebbles as a nod to the pearl bracelets fabric that makes an appearance in this quilt…

Happy little dreamy scallops…

The backing fabric is a 108″ wide Spot On Wide Circle in Steel.  Pink castle fabrics has a bunch of different colors from this line – very handy!

The binding is Paper Clips in Gray from the Type line…

    LOVE IT!!! I would love to try and use your technique to make a quilt similar to one of my favorite paintings – Paul Klee’s Highways and Byways – do you know it? Don’t you think your technique would be perfect?

  4. Wonderful quilt! I love the texture of the prints and quilting.
