Jaftex Blog Hop: Harvest Spectrum Quilt & Fat Quarter Bundle Giveaway

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Harvest Spectrum Quilt 

 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.

  Harvest Spectrum Quilt 

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".


Harvest Spectrum Quilt 

I quilted vertical organic lines to create movement in the quilt. Combined with the fabric's hand, this quilt has such a great texture.



As a special bonus, I'm giving away a bundle of 20 fat quarters - one of each of the colors featured in my quilt as seen in the photo above. Please leave a comment to be entered into the drawing. I will choose a winner at random on Sunday, September 27. I will ship anywhere in the world, so feel free to enter even if you are not in the U.S.A.

UPDATE: Congrats to commenter number 7, Dudette! I will contact you to arrange for shipping.



Be sure to enter the Grand Prize Giveaway, too!
