Dear Stella Fabric Challenge Quilt


QuiltCon is being held in February 2013. One of the challenges was to create a modern quilt using Dear Stella Fabrics. You can check out the official rules and challenge fabrics here.

My idea was to use all four colors of one fabric and match up the patterns, so that the bubbles looked like they were floating in the main fabric. I added some additional solid bubbles, using the same colors as the challenge fabric. Finally, I used trapunto to make faux bubbles throughout the quilt. The entire quilt is quilted using pebbles (which are meant to look like bubbles), although the quilting is hard to see in the photograph. This was really fun to do.
