I started this one back in November, shortly after quilt market. 2wenty THr3e (so weird to write it that way) was one of my favorite lines from market, and I managed to get two "candy" charm packs (2.5" squares).
I resolved that I would minimize the use of other prints and make a quilt top with them. After looking through my solids stash, I loved the look of Kona Pond with the 23(shortening here) palette.
I also used an unknown burgundy solid, in small bits. As you can see from the photo above, I started with blocks of strips, and used Kona Pond to fill in the rest.
A swirly free-motion pattern felt right on this; it's a very soft color scheme.
I had the best time quilting this one. I wrote my name and some other fun things.
The resulting texture is crinkly. delicious. comforting.
I used a variety of stashed remnants and more Kona Pond and burgundy for the back.
This one measures 50" x 64".
This one really challenged me; I have a hard time limiting prints and letting solids really shine. I love it.
