I absolutely love this new quilt top! It came about from sketching some block shapes. I think you can really see some influence from my career as a graphic designer in it. The shapes are quite flat, but the way the shapes overlap and the color positioning creates a lot of depth and movement. To me, it has a good balance of expected and unexpected. That little red cross finishes it like a little punctuation point.
I included a textured background fabric which is Line Scratch in charcoal from Carolyn Friedlander. This fabric is brilliant in the way it hides seams. The seams are even more invisible than on the solids. Carolyn's fabrics are amazing. I've been mulling over how to quilt it. I haven't quite decided but it will be on the simple side. It needs a structured and/or linear quilting, not something very curvy. Now you know what I'll be working on in my spare time!
