Another fun and colorful quilt made by Joyce W. Very modern and vibrant. The pattern is called, “Clarkson Crossing” by Julie Labauve and Tammy Silvers for Outside the Line Designs. I used a new thread color called Star Gold and it really looked great on both the gray and orange fabrics. And because I was inspired by the orange nature of this quilt, I created a new quilting pattern I’m calling Orange Slice. I combined the topographic pattern (Sheila Sinclair Snyder introduced me to this one!) with some sliced oranges every now and then. Yes, my brain works in mysterious ways.
I had the privilege of creating this quilt for my friends Kathy and Jon. Jon’s mom commissioned me to do the piece as a gift. It took almost a year, and a lot of thought, but the end result was pure happiness.
Each piece was cut separately and put up on the design wall until I got the effect I wanted.
Then each block was sewn and trimmed and then sewed together in rows. Lots of bias edges!
I was so excited to get them the quilt once it was finally finished that I didn’t take a lot of photos. At some point I plan to get more photos of it and post them here.
And then some day…..yes, some day I will write up the pattern for it!
