New Wave Quilt WIP

Working down my list, now that my mini-quilt is done, I’ve turned my attention to my New Wave quilt (pattern by Elizabeth Hartman from Oh, Fransson). Although I’ve been gathering the perfect arrangement of fabrics for well over a year, I put this quilt top together in a massive sewing frenzy over the bank holiday weekend at the end of May. It was like a blur of thread and bits of fabric.

This one’s all for me-me-me, in all it’s gloriously brown-and-gold 70s-ness. Yum! I’m even using a vintage sheet as the backing. These are totally, completely, not like my normal color choices and maybe that’s why I love it so much. Do you ever find yourself drawn to things that seem wildly un-you and love them double-much for it? I think it’s important to sometimes treat ourselves to something that’s completely out of the ordinary, whether it be fabric choices or a day out. It shakes things up.

Anyway, I pieced the back and basted it shortly after that weekend, but it was put aside for other things until now. Now the quilting’s almost done and I’ve got the binding (HOT pink, baby!) all ready to go.

Expect an FO post on this one soon – I’m actually quite in need of a light quilt for these suddenly hot summer nights, so I’m anxious to get it done!

    Yes, it’s fun to just go a little wild and random! Love the quilt!
