Paula was fond of bright colors, and making quilts for kids through Project Linus. To honor that, I have two bright kid's quilts to share.
The first up is Burst, a new, fun pattern, so named because of the burst of color coming from the center of the quilt.
Paula would have loved all of these bright colors on the black background, as do I, though any other color would work just as well.
Burst, as a baby quilt, measures in at 42" x 42". The Burst pattern also includes sizes for crib, lap, twin, queen - that's a lot of quilts! This little guy sports the Passion Fruit pantograph quilted in a variegated thread. Definitely keeping with the multi-colored theme!
The backing is a multi-colored ladybug fabric from my stash, which works absolutely perfect here.
And the second quilt, Jax, is a fun, random setting that reminds me the game Jacks.
This one, too, looks great on a black background, but would look terrific with blue, grey, or even black-on-whites. Hmm, there may be another quilt or two in my future!
The backing on Jax is colorful too, full of all sorts of construction trucks.
Believe it or not, it also uses variegated thread and the Passion Fruit pantograph, but the flowers are turned into stars by quilting straight lines and omitting the center loop.
Paula would have been so happy, don't you think?
