Wonderful World of Color Blog Hop

 


Welcome! It's day three of the wonderful World of Color Blog Hop and today I'm showing off some colorful Wonky Hearts.




This wonky heart die from Accuquilt is perfect for 10 inch squares and my Island Batik Ambassador box came with the perfect stack of Island Batik Contempo - by Kathy Engle for Kate Colleran Designs LLC.




These hearts sewed up super quick.  
The longest part was deciding which colors to pair with each other.





I really like the look of all the hearts together without sashing, but then quilt would have been super small.  The blocks come out to 6 inch finished.






So I fiddled with some sashing.  I used the Island Batik foundation print called Heavenly.  At first I cut a 2.5 inch strip, but I wasn't quite feeling it...





So I took off an inch and made it smaller... much better.





For the outer border I used the Island Batik Foundation called Twilight.




For the back I used another Island Batik foundation print called Ivy in Tourmaline with a strip of left over Island Batik Butterfly print running down the middle.




This quilt is loaded with color from front to back.




I quilted it with yellow thread.  It popped just right on everything.





Be sure to hop on over to the other blogs check out all the other creations today!
