I'm really excited that I was able to finish this quilt. I started it during the Kaleidoscope Quilt Along last June! I was keeping up with the instructions, but once the top was done it was set aside. I had decided who I would give it to, and wouldn't need it for almost a year. So there it sat in the WIP pile for 10 months!
When I finally decided to get going on my May/June project list, I flipped through the quilt along Flickr group for quilting inspiration. Celeste Johnson's quilting was just the ticket. I think it makes the shapes look faceted, like jewels.
I'm not completely happy with the back. It would have been better with the darker solid on the ends, but the pieced strip of leftover triangles looked terrible next to the floral print.
The quilting looks so cool on the solid back!
It's such a gorgeous day, just had to get one more shot!
I have a title in mind, but I can't tell you until after it is gifted. The recipient might read this!
Edit: This quilt was gifted to my daughter's best friend, Genevieve, for her high school graduation. Her favorite color is purple, so as soon as I pulled the fabric, I knew it would be for her.
