With the pandemic keeping life at a near stand-still, I suspect I’ll be as productive in 2021 as I was in 2020. (Heck, what else do I have to do?!) To prove my point, I have two finishes to share today. Yeah, I’m pretty sure that has never happened before!
The first quilt, shown in the photo above, is perhaps the most obnoxious palette I have ever worked with: pink, rainbow, and more pink. It assaults my adult sensibilities, but the intended recipient—a little girl on her ninth birthday—will, I think, adore it.
This pattern is my Ridiculously Easy Jelly Roll Quilt in the child size. The rainbow fabrics come from stash; I tried to strike a balance by using mostly geometrics and two-color prints and adding an occasional multicolor print here and there, something I accomplished without venturing to my local quilt shop. : )
The background is mostly Kona Pink. Because I didn’t have enough yardage for the entire background, I supplemented with a darker solid pink and a pink Moonscape print from Dear Stella. To make the multiple background fabrics more cohesive, I used the Moonscape for the binding as well. I think it works!
The back (see photo below) is composed of a few selections from the front. Like almost all of my projects, I quilted this one myself. The quilting design is my current go-to for this pattern: a simple chevron across the foreground fabrics.
How is your 2021 going so far? Are you like me, sewing to stay sane and forecasting a productive year at your machine?
