This modern large bay quilt or lap quilt was made in 2018 for the Stash Statement blog tour. I used a variety of bright jewel colored prints to create improv fabric groupings for the blocks and Kona Breakers for the background.

I knew that I wanted to quilt loops in the background, so I started there using 50 wt Aurifil 1148 to blend in with the Kona Breakers. I outlined each snowball block as I quilted the background. I color matched the thread to each snowball block color, using 50 wt 1104 for the orange blocks, 28 wt 2135 for the yellow blocks, 1231 for the chartreuse blocks, 4020 for the pink blocks, and 2535 for the fuchsia blocks. I quilted vertical back and forth lines in the smallest size snowball blocks and horizontal back and forth lines in the medium and largest size snowball blocks.

I bound the quilt with a fun bright pink print, and I love the way it frames the quilt. I used more Kona Breakers for the back of the quilt. I inserted a strip of bright orange to get to the needed width. Up close, the thread color changes for the top of the quilt (I matched bobbin thread to the top thread for quilting) show throw on the backing in a very subtle way.

Measures 47 1/2″ wide by 47 1/2″ long

All fabrics (front and back) are cotton quilting fabrics. The batting is called Dream Green. Dream Green is a soft, cozy batting made 100% from recycled plastic bottles!

The edges of this one-of-a-kind quilt are straight, the corners are square, and the entire quilt lies flat; all features of a well-made quilt.

Pictures do not portray the true beauty of my quilts. You’ll know you have a treasure when you hold one in your hands. I promise you will not be disappointed with the quality of my work!

I will gently pre-wash the quilt in free and clear laundry detergent and dry it on a gentle cycle prior to shipping. Please launder your quilt on a gentle cycle in cold water and dry on low heat or hang to dry.
