Panels

This is the fourth and the last of the quilts I finished over the last few months. This one is for my mom. And my favorite. I have a few more quilt tops finished, but they might have to wait. A bit.

This is what the process looked like. I selected some fabrics I picked up at the Crate and Barrel outlet store (Marimekko), cut them up in panels, move them around the design board until I was happy with the colors, and then I started cutting and adding strips of the gray chambray. (You can see full sized pictures here)

I quilted with different color threads, simple straight lines.

I used gray thread for all quilting over the chambray.

Initially I planned to quilt in both directions, but when I finished this one, I thought it might be too busy. And, really, I need to finish it.

The back… I had a hard time figuring out what to use for the back. Nothing I had in my stash fit. So I did what I never do – I pieced the back, using the same fabrics I used in the top. Crazy, but I like it.

Scrappy binding.
