Today's my stop on the Jaftex 85th Anniversary Blog Hop. Jaftex abrics sent me a gorgeous bundle of 20 Studioe Peppered Cottons to use to create a project of my choosing. I love the saturated colors in this line and designed a quilt that uses about a fat eighth of all twenty colors in the bundle.
To create this quilt, I first cut out strips of fabric that were 8" wide. Then I cut the strips into pieces that were 2.5", 3.5" and 5" tall. I arranged the fabrics in a gradient and then altered each column of fabric to make a pixelated design. The finished quilt measures around 54" x 56".
I quilted vertical organic lines to create movement in the quilt. Combined with the fabric's hand, this quilt has such a great texture.
