I've decided to enter Feeling Groovy in the Throw/Lap Quilt category. It measures right at 6ox60 inches.
I fell in love with Pat Bravo's Carnaby Street fabrics as soon as I saw them and I knew that I needed a special pattern to show them off. I opted for a X-Plus pattern, and it's a choice I'm still glad I made. Instead of making a scrappy quilt with this pattern as I have usually seen, I decided on two shades of gray, Kona Coal, and Kona Iron for the background, to really let the Carnaby Street shine.
I love how the grays recede into the background and allow the Carnaby Street to jump out, creating an almost 3D effect.
This is also my most favorite quilt backing I've ever made. I didn't want any of my precious scraps to go to waste, so I improv pieced them into a panel, which I think makes the backing as fun as the front!
This quilt was so much fun to make, from the fabrics right down to the chevron binding in the perfect shade of teal.
