Sequenced Quilt

The quilting on Sequenced, the bonus Sesen quilt, came together much quicker than I anticipated, and I just love the additional texture and detail it gives the design!

Sequenced Quilt

Sequenced Quilt

Sequenced is a 60″ x 80″ quilt, which was a comfortable size for my husband to hold inside when we tested out holding the quilt… but he had to balance on his tiptoes when we were outside on the grass. As always, I’m so grateful that he’s always willing to hold my quilts for my finished quilt photography.

Sequenced Quilt (Back)

I used Kona Purple for the back of the quilt and binding (which is the same fabric as the background on the front of the quilt). When a quilt has a solid backing, I love how a detailed quilting plan can create a beautiful two sided quilt! In particular, it’s easy to see that the dense back and forth free motion quilted lines inside the red circles on the front of the quilt read as red on the back of the quilt. The areas where I used matching red or orange thread for simple straight line quilting with my walking foot are color details that are not apparent until you get much closer to the quilt.

Sequenced Quilt – Quilting Detail on Back

After I finished the purple straight line quilting, I did have a little internal debate with myself if it would be worth switching over to my hopping foot and doing the free motion quilting back and forth lines that I had created in my quilting plan. I am so glad that I didn’t change my mind and went forward with the full quilting plan. I really love the texture that the back and forth lines create, and I like how the back and forth lines in the red circles on the front of the quilt create echo ghost shapes of some of the piecing elements.

Sequenced Quilt and Meyer Lemon Tree

I know it looks like an orange tree, but the tree on the right in the photo above is our Meyer Lemon tree. It produces the largest, most wonderful lemons almost year round. At the end of last summer, we trimmed the tree with the hopes the branches wouldn’t droop down to the ground when it was laden with fruit. We clearly still have some additional trimming to do this year!

Sequenced Quilt

The Sequenced quilt uses the large quarter circle scraps that were left over from making the Sesen quilt (Kona Coral and Kona Kumquat) and an additional background fabric (Kona Purple). Now that the Sesen bonus quilt is complete, I am ready to release the Sesen quilt pattern, which will also include instructions for the Sequenced bonus quilt, so keep an eye out for the release this Friday, April 15th!

Linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday, TGIFF, Beauties Pageant, and Finished or Not Friday.

    What a lovely finish! I really enjoyed seeing the back so clearly – your quilting plan was definitely a success! And that lemon tree! How I would love having access to one myself – that and an avocado tree seem like the ultimate indulgence – haha. BTW, I think it’s great that that Sequenced quilt is a BONUS pattern to your Sesen. That’s really cool
