After what feels like an incredibly long wait, I am very pleased to get to share my quilt Wonder with you today. Wonder can be found in Issue 65 of Love, Patchwork & Quilting, which released in the UK yesterday (Thursday, September 6th) and will be available in the US in another 4-6 weeks.
Wonder is a design sketch I made while sitting on a beach, listening to the waves lap against the shore, looking out at the turquoise colors deepening as the water depth increased off shore. I don’t think I’m the only one that looks out at the horizon across an ocean and is filled with a sense of wonder…
Wonder is made using Paintbrush Studio Painter’s Palette solids in Azure, Aruba, Pale Aqua, and Gulf Stream. I also color matched 50wt Aurifil threads to the Painter’s Palette solids and used 2805 (Light Grey Turquoise), 5006 (Light Turquoise), 1148 (Light Jade), and 4093 (Jade).
I finished Wonder last November and took it to my local mountain park for a few photographs before shipping it away. The bright colors had a stark contrast with the muted fall enviornment.
Wonder finishes at 66 inches wide by 84 inches long, and I was definitely grateful for my very tall husband’s ability to hold up a large quilt!
Linking up with Finish it Friday.
