Quilt measures - 56" x 72"
Here are the colors! I used Storm as my binding & setting fabric.
Ready for some outtakes from our cover photo shoots?
Fun Fact: My quilts generally lay around the house on railings or beds before their photo shoots so that they don't get any folds or wrinkles in them. Boomerang just happened to be hanging around on this day when I started painting my craft room. The combination of the ladder + partially painted room + finished quilt = cracks me up! (I promise the paint was far away from the quilt to avoid any possible nightmares.)
We decided to first take the quilt to our local park. It was pretty windy!
The wind calmed down a bit & we found this tree. I liked this photo, but it was just too gloomy in the background.
You probably can't tell from the first photo... but Lawrence is hiding behind the quilt! The wind kept knocking it down otherwise. He had to balance on that one rock in the bottom right & hold the quilt... all while ducking to not be seen! He is the best!!!
We were headed to Hawaii soon so we decided to take this quilt along and Arcade Game.
This is the spot! I just had to find the right angle + the right rock to stand on to get the cover!
Here is the back. I didn't have enough of the Pistachio green left so I used as much as I had & made it scrappy! Leftover strips in a gradient worked perfectly next to my label in my pieced quilt back.
Here is a detail photo of Angela's quilting. Angela quilted straight lines to frame boomerang within most of the diamonds and the boomerangs of each block. Then she alternated among straight lines, feathers and Figure 8s within the boomerangs of the blocks. The diamonds of each block were embellished with a complimenting geometric design to the design quilted within the boomerang.
The pattern is printed in full color, and it includes templates. Plus there's no Y seams!
It comes in 5 sizes: baby, lap, twin, queen, king.
