Meet Square Burst 2.0!
It is exactly the same pattern as the original Square Burst just brighter and happier. Don't get me wrong, thought the fabric in the original quilt was cute, but I love this brighter one just a tad more. It feels more ME!
Coming up with 21 Kona solids was a bit of a challenge, but it ended up being fun. I started with my current favorite colors (Windsor and Foxglove) and started adding from there. When I had 21, I would start swapping out one or two until I was happy with the final result.
In the end, the final 21 Kona colors were: Evening, Dusty Blue, Blueberry, Blue Bell, Windsor, Sage, Aloe, Berry, Plum, Mulberry, Amethyst, Lupine, Princess, Lilac, Dusty Peach, Blush Pink, Deep Rose, Rose, Ballet Slipper, Sea Glass, and Carribean.
I sent this off to my favorite long armer, Jill, to work her magic. She chose the Birds of a Feather panto, and its just lovely! I really enjoy sending her my quilt tops and letting her choose the quilting design. Its always a fun surprise to open my quilt back up when it gets home and see the result. Jill hasn't steered me wrong yet!
For the binding, I went with the striped fabric that is in the Minimalist version. Striped binding is my favorite and I will always choose that if its an option!
Now for pictures!
