A little while ago Todd of This Guy Quilts asked me if I would like to quilt his Scrappy Speckle Quilt. Would I what! I love Todd’s patchwork style and I love a modern quilt with lots of room to play.
Todd surrounded those tiny triangles with with white strips and then trimmed them down to squares, These finished at 3” in the quilt top,tiny, oh and by the way there 400 of these squares!
Todd gave me the go ahead to quilt his amazing top as I thought fit. Brave man! I was nearly having palpitations at the thought and then the idea popped into my mind to super impose some large triangles across the quilt and have them looking like they went over and under each other. So after much crawling around on the floor and marking the stitching commenced:
The centre triangle in the middle of each large triangle filled with pebbles. I thought lots of texture would look good.
After the pebbles I added wavy lines out to the border and piano keys in the border.
I am so in love with this quilt. I took it on down to our local Rose Garden for a photo session.
It’s such a bright vibrant quilt.
Because it’s so light and stitched with white on white it’s hard to see the texture but I hope you can.
Thank you for asking me to quilt this for you Todd.
