This is the Color Palette Challenge for May. This may be the first month I’ve actually quilted the top, though I’ve made a top for each month so far.
This quilt makes me smile – it’s happy and bright! The batting is Warm & Natural. The top thread is Signature Cotton, color Daisy. Even though the background is white, I thought using white thread would stand out like a sore thumb on the orange fabric so I went with the pale yellow thread. The bobbin is Perma Core and the color is Rye Beige. The panto, my favorite, is Square Spiral by Keryn Emmerson.
The backing is pieced, using a piece of fabric that’s been in my stash since the late 90’s. If I recall correctly, this piece was a gift from a Secret Sister program. The orange sections aren’t nearly as “standouttish” as they appear in the photo. This orange is actually in the backing fabric and this is the orange that will be used for the binding so it will kinda “frame” the backing and then have those two strips across the back.
