Welcome, friends! My second entry into the Fall 2014 Blogger’s Quilt Festival (small quilts category) is my Neon Sea Breeze!
I made this quilt for my first ever QAL and blog hop, hosted by the awesome and awesome (yes I meant to say it twice) Angie of Gnome Angel.
The pattern we used is the Sea Breeze Mini from Canoe Ridge Creations. I chose a combination of lively neons and black & white to play with contrast and really highlight the lovely and versatile design.
I decided to keep the back simple and let the quilting be the main attraction. I used a neon yellow thread from Coats & Clark. It’s intense, but I couldn’t resist!
In keeping with the bold graphic look, I used a fun black and white print to bind the quilt.
It’s not always easy to put yourself out there, but I’m so glad I did! And because of that, this bright and happy quilt holds a very special place in my heart. Not only does it scream “Amanda,” it also introduced me to a whole new world of quilty friends. Really, such a welcoming and supportive group of people!
