What can I say? this is a bit wild.
When the NY Modern Quilt Guild put it out last summer that they were holding a show and tell of double wedding ring quilts, I was really excited to make a modern variation. The design evolved a couple of different times during the sewing, but here is the top. Ready to baste and quilt…racing to get it done by the December 1st deadline!
this photo shows the blocks laid out on my sewing room floor before I sewed them together, but I like the close-up of all the fabrics.
I started with fat eighth bundle of Notting Hill fabric by Joel Dewberry, only using the pink/orange and green/blue color ways. I also added lots of pieces from my stash, including solids to tone it down a bit.

I admit that I ma not confident of the success of this concept. Is it just too much? maybe. It reminds me of those colorblindness tests where you look at a bunch of colored dots and see if you can pick out the numbers hidden in the contrasting colored dots.
Must get to quilting it.
I will be back Friday with our Midnight at the Oasis QAL post, I am loving how my quilt is looking!
