2016-11 Rainbow Bubbles

rainbow-bubbles

This little wall hanging was created because of a challenge  from my Modern Quilt Guild to use pastel colours in a modern quilt.  The fabric for the appliqued circles was a giveaway by fabric manufacturer Michael Miller at QuiltCon (the convention of the Modern Quilt Guild).   They are beautiful and have a lovely hand.  I teamed them with a pastel dotted background and a pale pink and white strip to create the intersections and binding.

The quilting in the circles is a small pebbled pattern and the rest of the quilting is horizontal straight stitching, which is quite common in modern quilts.

Our modern guild occasionally has challenges to try a technique in a small quilt (maximum 20″ square).  Because they are small, they are doable and as a result, I get them done!
