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.
