New Flying Colours Quilt

New Flying Colours Quilt
Update:  It’s been quilted! See here.

70” x 78” – Large twin-bed sized quilt top

I’m excited to share this work in progress with you!  It was patterned after a work appearing in McCall’s Quick Quilts by Designer Laurie Vandergriff.

It features 58 blocks in all, with graduated colours flowing from warm to cool. We used the Kona New Bright Palette Roll-up by Robert Kaufman Fabrics for the cascading brights, each with a black centre for contrast, and Victoria prints for many of the flags. Everything is set against a white-on-white fabric of small hummingbird images.

It is shown here as a quilt top, and will soon be fully quilted on a long-arm machine.  I’ll get images up of the completed project as soon as I can.
