The process of making the Lucent quilt / MQG Riley Blake Fabric Challenge quilt left me with 36 large HSTs. I pressed them, then I squared them to 8.5-inches, and I had a lot of fun playing around with the layouts. I wanted to keep the prints oriented “right side up” in the layout, but I still came up with 14 different options to choose from! In the end, I really liked the way the background / negative space read in this layout and quickly sewed it up.
I am really liking the star shape that is formed in the middle. I might need to explore it further…
And I just generally really love these colors together!
The quilt top finished at 48.5-inches square, and I am taking my time quilting it (re: I have been a bit under the weather and standing/not sitting curled up for long periods of time has not been happening this week). I don’t know if I have enough scraps of any of the Riley Blake prints left to make a binding roll for it, yet, but I sure hope I can eek out a scrappy binding. Time will tell!
Linking up with TGIFF.
