Pattern: My own foundation paper pieced design. You can find the tutorial on my blog.
Size: 47" x 51"
piecing: 50wt white aurifil and used up a bunch of random bobbins
Quilting: free motion figure eight quilting with 50wt white Aurifil on my home machine.
I originally designed this quilt for the Festival of Strings contest by Rachel at Stitched in Color. My design is a twist on foundation paper piecing hexagons into scrappy rainbow goodness:
The blocks are unified by a strip of Kona White. I varied the width and position of the white to add more interest. Here is a photo of the completed top floating in the breeze.
The quilting is an allover free motion figure 8 loop. It adds great texture but does not overwhelm the quilt or make it any busier!
The backing mirrors the pattern on the quilt top. I also added a strip of gray flannel along the side - make it work moment! The binding is Chicopee ladder dot in fuchsia. Love this print.
