All the fabrics I used had patterns, but they were subtle. To "jazz" it up a bit, I found 3 fabrics that had gold glitter on them. Now wait, I know you are thinking "how tacky!" The glitter was very subtle, only visible in certain lights, and frankly it looked good with the other fabrics. In the end I think the glitter fabrics really helped this quilt to "pop". The only problem, you can't really see the glitter in the pictures. Oh well, someday maybe I'll have a camera that does better pics, for now, I am happy with the one I have!
I pieced and quilted this on a sewing machine, and the quilting was done "on point". I really love how this quilt turned out! I thought it might get a bit boring (to me anyway since I love color) but I love it! Part of me wanted to keep it! That always happens when I make a quilt, a little part of you goes into it, so you want to keep it. But, if I kept them.... well, you know. So, total cost for this project, $12, that's a price tag I can live with!!
Have you made a quilt? Want to make one but not sure how? Let me know!
