When I work on a quilt that is so irregular in its design, I love to ask my incredibly supportive, yet symmetry-loving husband how he likes it...and watch him squirm as he tries to figure out what to say, while trying not to hurt my feelings. "Uh, well you know? It's certainly different; um...and colorful; and I mean, it definitely is modern." haha! Is it wrong that I know he won't like it, but ask him his opinion anyway, all while laughing on the inside? Yep. Just hand me my horns and pitchfork now. I did let him off the hook after just a little while, so I'm not completely heartless, but again- my mission.
I had so much fun diving into my scrap jars for this one, and I decided to quilt it with all over swirls. I'm going to level with you here. The choice of swirls was because I knew that my swirls still needed some work, and I knew that this crazy design would perfectly hide any imperfect quilting, though I do think they fit the feel of the quilt.
I love black and white prints paired with loud rainbow scraps, so I chose a polkadot for the backing; and in keeping with the spirit of the quilt, leftover binding pieces frame this scrap-happy quilt nicely.
After letting my hubby off the hook, he admitted that this quilt was not his cup of tea, and said that he just couldn't look at it. He jokingly said that the asymmetry made his skin crawl, and that lack of symmetry with all of the bright colors could cause Vertigo. I think that's an excellent name for it!
