intuition quilt


This is the final quilt with plenty of room for some shashiko style quilting.

This is the center I started with. Made from what was sitting on my cutting table.


Then I was inspired by these two old quilts from books I have.


These were the possibilities for adding to the center block. Once I decided on the darker blues I went to my stash to find more fabric with blue.

Once I got most of it together, I realized I shortchanged the bottom border.

I added the left side border to balance the quilt and cut off part of the bottom border.

I like it. The bright center surrounded by the blues with small pops of color on the left and bottom really work well.
