It seemed fitting to finish this week by sharing my most recent finish…which was also my first curved quilt EVER…
I started this quilt 2014 after being challenged to do some curved blocks for a quilting bee (thanks Michelle for the challenge!). For this top I used the EZ Circle ruler and the blocks are decidedly bigger than Monday’s adventure. If you want to learn more about the making of this quilt you can check out my original post here…
For this top I used a huge stack of solid scraps that I had in my stash…including Konas, Couture Cottons, Bella cottons and some American Made cottons. I do not make a lot of solid only quilts but solids seemed like the perfect way learn to curve piece (no pattern distractions!)….
I am thrilled with how it all turned out. I had Kazumi do some fabulous all over quilting on this baby…and I love the circles upon circles. I was worried at first that the quilting may compete with the piecing but I think they work well together…
And there is no way I could have done anything this cool with the quilting by myself. The quilt is backed with some fabulous IKEA fabric which seemed to compliment the crazy of the front of the quilt…
A little scrappy binding and I have another quilt off my WIP list. I am really rocking them this quarter… of course with some help from a very talented long arm quilter… it feels a little like cheating but I so love what Kazumi brings to my quilts.

So so very pretty!
I Love, Love this Quilt. I am going to have to start collecting solids to do one of these. Wow!
I don’t think my comment posted, but I just love this quilt in these colors. It is now on my “Bucket List”. Thanks for the inspiration.
SPECTACULAR!! Fabrics, colors, and quilting are all so well planned and fit together so well. What an artist you are!! Thanks for sharing.
I love this especially the colour combination, my favourite.. I also never wanted to use solids until very recently doing an Alternate ending quilt a pattern I bought on etzy. Your comment about not having to deal with pattern fabrics is so true, I hadn’t thought about that.
Your colors make this quilt sing!
Love the colors, the piecing and the quilting!
Gorgeous colours, and if you’d never said it was your first curved piecing quilt, we’d never have know. I predict more of these in your future…
Looove the color choice!!!
eveything about this quilt is gorgeous !!
Ahhhhsome. Love how the solids sing in this quilt. When I see something like this, I wish I had more solids in my stash!
The colors are sooooo bright and perfectly matching! Great pattern and lovely quilting, congratulations!
Love it. The colours are great and these curves look perfect.
So pretty and vibrant!
Oh wow that is just gorgeous!! What a lovely colour palette 🙂
Gorgeous colour choice !
I think it’s only cheating when you don’t credit the team involved in the final product. I notice you don’t have any of the plum coloured fabric as quarter-circles, only arcs, so I’m wondering if you have another stack somewhere or if the die only cuts one half of the set? I’ve made these using templates from charm squares, so I end up with an arc and quarter-circle from each charm square.
I have another quilt tip all made using the darker left overs. It is basted waiting for quilting.
I love your use of colour and placements – also that quilting is great – well done 🙂
Your quilt is lovely, I like the solid colors, they definitely stand out with that beautiful quilting.
I adore the colours you’ve used – such a striking and beautiful quilt. Thanks for participating in the 2016 FAL on behalf of the global hosts 🙂
