I can’t wait any longer; I have to share the second version of Wayward Transparency that I just finished. This time I used prints!

The fabrics are all by fabric designer Sarah J. The light and medium value prints come from her Dandy Days line and the dark value is from A Shout, a whisper, a Text.

I stuck with a crosshatch quilting motif, like in my first version of Wayward Transparency, but this time I quilted it horizontally and vertically instead of at a 45-degree angle. I used 50wt Aurifil #2588 (Light Magenta), and I love how it created a fun textured that plays off the prints as well.

The Wayward Transparency Quilt Along officially kicks off tomorrow when I’ll be sharing planning details and fabric requirements. Then come back on Saturday for a big post with loads of color and fabric inspiration along with bundle buying and discount code details! I hope you’ll be sewing along with me. I don’t know what I’ll chose for fabrics to sew for my third version…

    It’s absolutely stunning! I don’t wish time away, but I didn’t think tomorrow would ever get here!

  5. kitty says:

    I really like this version and your quilting!! To me the crosshatch here gives the impression of a loosely knitted background fabric.

  6. Pam Arbour says:

    I am not sure why, but it seems even more beautiful to me in the prints. I guess I can visualize more options with prints! My mind is running through my stash!

  7. Liz Horgan says:

  17. I love this version! I’m a sucker for anything pink 😉

  18. This one looks a bit like an optical illusion – probably the print + piecing together. It’s so cool! Looking forward to the color you choose for round 3!

  19. EllenB says:

    Perfect colors and prints for a fabulous quilt. For me, choosing colors is the hardest part of the quilt making process!

  20. Tish says:

  23. Annette says:

    Squeeeee! I feel like I’m 6 years old and it’s Christmas Eve!

  24. Paula S. Pike says:

    Wow! That certainly changes the dynamics of the quilt. I love it both ways!!!

  25. I loved the solids version but I like this even more. I may have to make two quilts now. Can’t wait to start the QAL.

  26. Cate says:

    I have a new and lovely LQS who has a stock of lovely V and Co. Ombres and all the new Tula Pink Spirit Animal, and I think I’m going to need to go and visit her, take some pictures, and figure out what colors I need to go with. There are so many I love!

  27. wannajava says:

    The prints look amazing,

  28. Alycia C says:

    It is SO gorgeous in those prints!!!

  29. It’s lookin’ mighty awesome, Yvonne! It’s refreshing to see it done in prints as that opens up a whole other world of options for transparency. Love what you’ve done, and how you’re sharing this with all of us. Looking forward now to starting to sew!

  30. Nancy N says:

    Love the prints as well as the solids version. Looking forward to the coming days.

  31. lorindadavis says:

    I am in love with this quilt! Great job, Yvonne!

  32. sue7oaks says:

    This is a great version Yvonne! Looks like you’ve got a good deal of interest in this! It should be a resounding success!

  33. gsyanne63 says:

    This is so beautiful, these transparency quilts are awesome xxx

  34. Kate says:

    Oh so pretty! Both versions turned out beautifully, but I really like this print version. I just may have to try this one. Not that I need another project, but I could certainly stand to move a little fabric out of the stash closet. Solids, I have none. But prints, I’ve got lots of those.

  35. nan says:

    Wow, this is stunning!!!!

  36. Debbie says:

    I really love that kind of quilting! Beautiful quilt!

  37. Kaja says:

    It’s really interesting to see how you can use prints and still keep all the characteristics of the design that were so striking in solids. This is really cool!

  38. Wow, Yvonne! Saw this on Instagram, but on the laptop, bigger, it makes me GRIN! Can’t wait to do my fabric pull.

  39. sue7oaks says:

    I love this version, Yvonne. The prints add just that little extra something!

  40. I like this version. But I think I still prefer the original colour scheme…which I based my fabric choices on.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
