Mini Quilt Monday :: Color of the Year Swap


Another Monday, another mini!
This is one of the mini quilts that I made for the Color of the Year swap - I made two because I just couldn't make up my mind. I'm sending this one and keeping the other, which I'll share next Monday.

So Marsala...love it or hate it everyone seems to have an opinion.
Personally I love it!


It was the July 2013 quilt called Fireworks - I know she's released some of the patterns individually so you may just be able to buy this one.

I used Kona Sienna in the middle for my Marsala focus, the other fabrics are painter's canvas from Laura Gunn, a Botanics print from Caroline Friedlander and a teal woodgrain print from Joel Dewberry and of course Kona Snow as the background color.
I used a Kona that was slightly darker than the center for the binding just to add a little more contrast.


I quilted inside the Kona Snow background areas, marking first with a hera marker 1/4" inside the shapes. I didn't want to take away from the rich colors or design so I kept the quilting pretty simple but I like the texture it adds without distracting! Since my partner is away for spring break I'm waiting till the end of the week to mail it but it will make a nice addition to her mini collection :-)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
