WIP: Coral+Turqoise

Coral+Turquoise: Mitten to Apple inspired by In Color Order
 I have a new work in process: Coral+Turquoise.

I've finished the inner portion of the lap quilt, but I've yet to add the borders and other accents I have in mind.

So far, I'm loving the look of this little project! I've admired Jeni Baker's In Color Order Arithmetic Quilt for quite some time, and when I received a bunch of eighth yards for my birthday in various tones of coral and turquoise, I immediately wanted to create my own version of her popular design.

So I paired those beautiful colors with some beautiful Robert Kaufman Quilter's Linen- swoon! Then, using some math (to figure out how best to utilize those eighths) and graph paper, I figured out exactly how many squares I could make out of my gifted fabric, and I filled in the missing "pluses" with the quilter's linen... so simple!

I can't wait to finish this baby up - won't be long I now (<famous last words, eh?)!

  3. I am visiting from WIP wednesday. The photo was what caught my eye. I call these quilts a "cross" quilt. I did a gorgeous one for my son in solid colours and love the simpleness of the pattern. Your colours are stunning
