2012-28: Fuchsia Strip Challenge Quilt

Fuschia Squares

Inspired by the Guild’s 2.5 inch strip kit challenge, I made several quilts to enter into the challenge.  This kit contained purples, red-violets, and blues – a nice analogous color scheme.  I tend to like the red-violets – at least in my clothing – so was drawn to this package of strips.  We were allowed to add one color, if we wished.   I chose white, primarily because I have tons of white fabric gifted to me from a shirt factory.  The design advantage to adding a neutral  is that it gives the eye a place to rest from the variety of designs in the strips.

The top was quilted with the Circle Lord Swirlz template using a bright fuchsia thread.  The roundness of the swirls added movement to the quilt design.

The quilt finished at 46 x 64 and will go into the Community Outreach stash of completed quilts ready for eventual donation to a local charity.
