Pat sent this quilt. Pat has sent me many quilts. she always has amazing projects. I think she purposefully chooses projects that will challenge her. Or she truly just loves the process on several different techniques…because they are always different. I love that.
This is called Aurora , Be Colorful Quilts. It’s a pattern by Jaqueline De Jong.
So the details. I used 3 different thread colors. Black, white and bright variegated. I used a ruler for all of the straight lines and some circles. everything else is freehand. the filler is pebbles.
So the whole time I was trying to plan the designs of this quilt I was thinking symmetrical. I assumed because the pattern and fabrics were symmetrical that I needed to follow suit. Everything that I was coming up with Pat wasn’t a fan of…..and I was trying to figure out what to do. So as we were going back and forth trying to get designs…I realized that she didn’t want symmetrical…so I didn’t need to make 4 matching designs in each corner. So then I sent her the blog post of this quilt.
That was it. We finally figured it out. I would go in with the colorful thread and make a few designs to pop out and then use black threads to fill it all in.
I wish I could get better lighting so you can see my stitching a bit better. But I am on a timeline…the lighting wasn’t cooperative and this is the best I could get.
But you can see a picture of the back that does show how much thread I laid down:
Thanks Pat! Always a pleasure working with you! I hope you love your quilt!
Many blessings For all of you!
