Bright Solids

I recently finished another quilt!
This one has been a work in progress for quite awhile.
Last year sometime, I asked my do. Good Stitches bee mates to make Road to Tennessee blocks with bright Kona solids.  The blocks sat in my sewing room for a long time, until I came up with a layout that I liked.  I love how the one block set in a square of white really shows off the pattern.

I quilted the white spaces in straight lines -- rectangles around the outer edges of the quilt, and straight lines that echo the center solids in the middle.  The rest of the quilt is quilted in a swirly/loopy meander, in a bright variegated thread.  Fun!


The finished quilt measures 62 x 50 inches.
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts at Finish it up Friday!


  1. this is so pretty! Love the bright, happy colors!

  2. Very pretty - love all the color. And that one block perfectly sets off the pattern.

  3. That's really cool how you have one block on its own amongst all the other pattern - great work!

  4. This turned out really neat - and what a great idea for a bee quilt!

  5. Your quilt is beautiful and bright. The bordered block makes it so much more interesting!
