State of Being... in Jamaica!

If you're a member of the Modern Quilt Guild, you probably received the State of Being pattern back in June 2016.  It was designed by one of my favourite designers: Cheryl Brickey of Meadow Mist Designs. As soon as I saw it in my inbox, I immediately added it to my list for the Summer.


I had a large cut of Kona Jamaica so decided to use that as the background.  The other fabrics are Kona Ash and Kona Kumquat.  I just love the contrast of the Kumquat against the Jamaica.



For the quilting, I went with something quick and easy - wavy vertical lines quilted with the walking foot.


I'm very happy with this finish - I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with the quilt yet. And that's a little bit strange for me.  I typically know who the quilt is going to be gifted to when I start a project. But this one doesn't really have a destination...  I made it just because I fell in love with the design.  So maybe I'll end up keeping it for me.  :-)



This is project number 5 on my FAL list for Q3 of 2016.

I'll also be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts and at Anja Quilts for TGIFF.
