Paint drips in all its glory hanging on the fence. You can read about the making process here. It started as part of Quilter's Mixology SAL.
The process of picking up fabrics was not easy. I had few other options on mind but as usual I was driven towards rainbow. I have no purple linen in my stash so I had to omit that and yellow is my least fav that is why I gave it the skinny strip only :) That is also the reason why pink got to play small part. The only thing that makes me little uncomfortable is that contrast in blue section.
If you look closely you can find a touch of purple at right top corner. I had to put some in there so part of binding it is. Talk about OCD.
All the credit for this fab quilting goes to my friend Monika. She was the one who quilted Summertime Sadness but this time I get to keep it. To me it's great source of inspiration and motivation to keep on trying FMQ.
The hanging sleeve and corners are made out of non fusible interfacing which I ordered wrongly and it works just fine for this kind of job. You may notice I put the corners at the bottom as well. In my opinion the added weight of stick makes the piece even more flat and pretty :)
The fun part of naming quilts by song titles is here. This one is called Chandelier (by Sia). My current fav song and I don't want to explain more. Pun intended :)
I'll be linking up with ALYoF as to finish this quilt was my October goal. I'm also adding it into Quilter's Mixology linky, TGIFF and Crazy mom quilts.
