Another finish this week, Solar Flare.
This another from Ricky Tims' Convergence Quilts, my Book of the Month for November.
The first quilt I did was Pink Lattice,
and I had so much fun with that one that I made a second!
The fabric for Solar Flare had red, yellow and blue in it, and this was the perfect project for this piece.
I paired it with one red square and one blue, which gave the exploding look coming from the lower right.
At one point I wanted more yellow, and found a fabric that also had some red in it--perfect!
Cutting 1" strips, I inserted those in between each strip, both vertically and horizontally. Gave the quilt a bit of a 'looking through a lens' look.
This one has an all over design called Blast Off, of a rocket ship, star, and moon. That way, I can give it to a child.
And here's the back
If you haven't tried one of these convergence quilts, you should! They are super fun!
