Hi. Happy Monday! Did you have a good weekend?
I dreamed of cupcakes. Yummy rainbow cupcakes from my daughter's birthday which was in December... but never mind that part. Take a closer look. Do you see a quilt idea hiding in there? Look at the tippy top. Look at the sprinkles.

The nine patches for my Kona challenge quilt didn't work out. When I stood back and looked at the pieces on the wall there was nothing holding it together. Which caused me to sit and stare at the wall, unsure of where to go next. I realized it was the squares that were bothering me.
I got out some paper and started brainstorming ways to break up their blockiness. I would finish a sketch and declare to DH, "I could do this! Or this, what about this?" "Uh-hmm," he says each time. Big hugs to him for letting me spin my wheels so noisily. Finally I had an idea that felt right. Then in a burst of productivity I cut and sewed all weekend.
It's definitely a work in progress. This is more or less the top half. I have even more colors to add. I'm not sure about the leftover squares. Maybe a border? Maybe just extras... they measure 1"x3.5". Yikes! I'm also thinking ahead about binding and quilting options. I would love a stripe. Do you know of any that would work with these colors? Or maybe white. I've never done a white binding.
that is lovely, Adrianne! i am still *challenged* by those tiny squares. your sprinkles resolution is really charming! and i love the inspiration!ReplyDelete
Love your sprinkles, calories and non calorie!!ReplyDelete
I love that pop of color on crisp white! Still need to become inspired to rip into my own Kona charm pack. :)ReplyDelete
Adrianne, I just *love* this! You should make it a pattern - really!!ReplyDelete
(white binding would look fab, or charcoal if you're not sure about white.)
That is really cute Adrianne!! What about using some strips from the Remix line, by Anne Kelle?ReplyDelete
That's amazing! Such a great idea. The white space breaks up the colours really well.ReplyDelete
this is gorgeous!! i love this so much.ReplyDelete
This is a wonderful design. I love seeing your inspiration translated into this top.ReplyDelete
Love it! I think a white binding would be perfect.ReplyDelete
Hi! Really cute quilt, and since I'm soooo in the mood for a cupcake, I love your inspiration too! I think I'd do a white binding, or a polka dot with a white background and 1/2 inch to one inch blue dots...ReplyDelete
