What do Bubbles and Math Have in Common?
They’re both a part of this quilt I recently finished. Math because it’s a free Layer Cake (10” squares) pattern from Moda called “Basic Math”. Bubbles because that’s the edge-to-edge quilt design Kim Hart, long-arm quilter, and I agreed would be just the ticket for this very geometric quilt. Kim is the talented quilter from The Busy Bobbin here in Florida. I first saw this quilt made by Susan of Studio Adventures. Her quilt, which you can see here, was done in bright, happy colors. I had the Barcelona Layer Cake here in the sewing room just waiting for a quilt to land in. So here it is- simple, fun, and bright.
Here’s a close-up of Kim’s quilting done in a flame-color variegated thread. Plus you can see some of the print patterns a bit better here. Susan also made a Barcelona quilt- these same fabric prints but pieced in a different pattern. You can see that one of hers here.
More bubbles and fabrics. I love this fabric line! Speaking of quilting projects, Elizabeth at Altered Book Lover blog invited me to be her guest in a post on her blog. She conducted an e-mail interview, and then chose photos from my blog to illustrate the article. I must say, Elizabeth made me look good, so kudos to her! It was fun to review my blog through her eyes, and there were some photos I'd almost forgotten about. Plus I’ve met some new blog-land friends thanks to her post. If you’d like to take a look, here’s the link.
