Blogger’s Quilt Festival Spring 2014: ROYGBIV quilt


This is the quilt I made to swap for the DQS 14.  It was a labor of scrappy, Tula Pink, fussy cut, low volume love.  

title:  Prism Star
size:  24" by 24"
design: Original by Colleen Yarnell 
inspiration:  Bright rainbow colors and low volume prints with anything Tula Pink.

I started with these Tula Pink purples. 

Then I did some scrappy fabric pulls and started cutting squares.  I have a great scrap stash.


I decides to build a rainbow star with a low volume background.  I had no repeats for the ROYGBIV fabrics.  I did repeat on the low volume prints.  Some I turned over to lesson the tone.  Then I laid it out.


Sewing it together.


I went ahead and pieced the label from scraps of purple Tula Pink. 


I was going to hand quilt in different pearl cottons but then decided simple straight line to enhance the lines of the quilt. 




I used a scrappy low volume binding with colors thrown in to match the star points.

I love that you flipped over the fabric to make it more neutral - I do that a lot and was wondering if I was the only one!

Fantastic. I would have been beyond happy if this had been my quilt. Love the mix of fabrics, the larger parisville square and the star. I cam over from BQF and am glad I did!
