The Kona lagoon was a tad sneaky when it came time to photographing it. The true color was not in attendance. Probably the best photo above!
For the quilting I chose Garnet Gutermann thread since that wasn't as prevalent in the quilt top and I think it worked out well. View from the back and see that lagoon changing before your eyes;) I am good aren't I --he,he...
minimal quilting efforts really due to the star taking the show on its own so beautifullyI added an extra 6" border too so it would drape nicely on the queen size bed . Remember this is for our guest bedroom.
Binding is the Kona spice again to tie everything else in. The hubs got in on that decision too--he is great,isn't he:) I am really pleased with it this time too. I finally got the technique down and it lays flat. This was not the case in the last 2-3 quilts sorry to those who received my bumpy oopsies!
Indoors was no help either for the lagoon:( I love her anyway!! Some geometric lines were added inside the lagoon triangles for some fun designs.
A few very organic lines to add some rays coming off the star.
And a french seamed pillowcase I made with some leftover garnet fabric.
She measures 88x88 square and she wasn't short on frustrations for me, but with only a few diamonds that weren't completely matched,she came out safely and is now ready to be loved by all of our guests.
Don't ya'll just love quilting!!!!
P.S. Thanks for the pattern Bec you have pushed me out of my boundaries;)
