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!
