The Traveling Quilts ~ Round Five

The Traveling Quilts for Heather

I’m back from the Sewing Summit! And very, VERY tired. In fact, very, VERY tired might be an understatement! I am planning a post about the long weekend away, but it’s all so overwhelming at the moment. I need some time to wrap my head around it all before typing it out. (It was an awesome time though!)

The Traveling Quilts for Heather

In the meantime, I thought I’d share the latest round of The Traveling Quilts. This month I had Heather’s quilt. Her quilt featured a variety of neutrals and geometric shapes (herringbones and the like). I believe Penny added in the large fish.

I decided to add a pop of color. My addition is the column on the right. Starting with a big chunk of a wine red Oakshott cotton, then some tiny strip columns of a combination of Oakshotts, a couple prints already in the quilt and neutrals. I finished the column with a deep chocolate brown Oakshott cotton.

I hope you like what I added Heather! Ashley now has the quilt and I’m sure she’s adding something really amazing.

    I love the color you added. Especially the greens really pop even because of the neutrals used everywhere else. I also love the fish and the upper left section with the “missing circle.” I can’t wait to see what happens to this next.

    I so desperately want this quilt! It is my favorite so far, too! I read something about modern quilts not using these types of colors, but I have to ask, why not?!? It’s just gorgeous, and your addition was perfect!
