Geometric Bliss Arithmetic Quilt
Thursday, September 4, 2014
Happy Thursday! Today I will be brief, as I turned out to be quite chatty yesterday! For the most part this quilt speaks for itself. This quilt was made for my Spring Quilt Market Booth for Geometric Bliss.
I love using my Arithmetic Quilt Pattern is show off fabrics. I seem to have made one from nearly all of my lines (see here and here), with the exception of Color Me Retro. It is simple but striking. It seemed wrong not to make one from Geometric Bliss! This was one of the last projects I made for the booth, so I used what I had left. I made one of the baby sizes!
I had a lot of fun picking thread to quilt this. Lucky for me, I had lots of options in my Favorite Things Aurifil Thread Collection. I ended up going with the minty thread!
For the quilting, I kept it simple with diagonal lines. I love this type of quilting.
I bound it up in Apricot Crepe Pure Elements. This was one of those projects that went from fabric picking to finishing in less than 24 hours. Not bad!
