I'm sure many, if not all of you have heard about the "Make it Right Challenge" using a panel plus some solids from Angela Walters' debut fabric line, Textures.
A little over a month ago, Angela asked me if I would participate in the challenge and I eagerly jumped at the opportunity to participate.
I wanted to leave the center of the panel alone and make it the focus of the quilt. I also knew that I wanted pull out some of the rectangles on the other half of the panel and feature them more prominently.
I love the colors in the panel, but I wanted to bring in another color that some people may not thing to add. I thought about going with a purple, but in the end picked this beautiful pink Pure Element solid - Cherry Lipgloss! Hey, what can I say? I like to be different. The background is Pure Element White Linen and the other teal is Tile Blue.
I know what you're thinking... I didn't use the whole panel, just a few pieces. Actually, I uses almost every single inch of that panel. What's not in the quilt top became a part of the binding.
When it came time to quilt this up, I wanted to emphasize the straight lines in the fabric. I divided the top into four equal quadrants and alternated the direction of the straight line quilting by quadrant.
I backed the quilt in the crosshatch print from Angela's textures line.
This quilt finishes at 48" x 46".
Are you planning on entering the Make it Right Challenge? If so, I'd love to see what you end up making.
