Throwback Thursday ~ Color Bars

I pieced and quilted this quilt about three years ago now. And it never found a home. Sometimes, you just have to patiently wait for a quilt to tell you where it wants to go. This one will be heading to Happy Chemo as part of the Hands2Heart 2016 challenge hosted by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. This backing fabric has been around a while! But I think it fits perfectly.

I learned to quilt these peacock feathers from one of Angela Walters’ books.


This next picture was a total accident, but something about it is cool so I threw it in here :).
This is for Sandra who also likes to hang quilts in trees!

Have a great day!

    A very vibrant quilt that will certainly brighten someones day! I love the ‘wonky’ picture you threw in…I’m a sucker for those kind of pictures. It’s like a fun house mirror effect!

    What a great quilt for Happy Chemo. It will appeal to anyone. I really like how the quilting shows as nicely on the back as the front. You picked a beautiful day for a photo shoot. (Don’t you love the lush green grass at this time of year?)

    You found the perfect home for the quilt. As others have said, it’s full of positive energy! BTW, your lawn is sooooo lush and green it leaves ME green with envy. We have water rationing here in CA.

    What a fun, vibrant quilt! I’m certain it will brighten up someone’s day and help them get through chemo. Your quilting is quite imaginative and a great fit for these colors and shapes. I’ve been learning from Angela, too.

    Hee hee! I LOVE that picture! Thought oh! I have to write to her about that, and then laughed out loud when I read the photo is for moi!! I love BOTH photos, the unintentional one, and the quilt in the tree one. I love the sense of movement you get from the first. Love the backing, and I’ve done that peacock feather too; need to do it more! So glad this will be going for a very worthy cause; I’ve never made a quilt that doesn’t have a home intended…well maybe one, but it’s living in my house on the back of a chair!

  12. It’s a really great quilt and you did a fabulous job on the quilting. Lots of my quilts haven’t found other homes – because I make so darn many!!! But that’s the fun of it, I think. Thanks for sharing, i enjoyed it.

  13. Oooh… that quilting is so good! I’m happy to hear that it’s finding a forever home. Thanks for linking up with Throwback Thursday @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge!
