It measures 23″x96″ and was made specifically to show off Lizzy House’s Whisper Palette fabric line in the Andover Fabric’s booth at Quilt Market. It’s odd proportions are to help it fit on the pillars they use in their booth.
I was unable to get a full shot of the banner at my house, but I hope to get better shots of it at the show or when it comes home.
You can sort of see the quilting I did with my longarm in the shots above. All of the negative space was quilted with my version of feathering, and the circles themselves are free hand straight line stitched. I wanted to divide the two areas and give the piece some texture since it is sooooo white.
This is also the palest quilt I’ve ever worked on. I was so scared I was going to stain it or something worse the entire time. It doesn’t help that I have a messy and curious 6 year old running around.
Even with the fear of stains and the difficulty photographing, this is probably one of my favorite projects to date. Actually it might be my new favorite pattern! I’ve already started on two more versions, and will be releasing the pattern with instructions later next month. I’m excited.
The quilt will be returning to me after the show, but I don’t plan on keeping it. It’s too white for a house with the previously mentioned 6 year old living in it. So I will be cutting it up and assembling them in to four 20″ pillows that I’ll add to the shop. So keep an eye out for those!! (You can call dibs too, just email me)
