I finally finished putting my supernova swap quilt together:
My partner Amy and I swapped 5 blocks over 5 months to put this quilt together for the Supernova Friendship swap (organized by Stephanie of Late Night Quilter and Sandra of One million stitches -- based on a Quilt-Along from Lee at Freshly Pieced.)
I tried to get some nice, sunny photos on the coast this morning, but it was a little to windy and sunny.
We both used a bundle of AE Nathan's Quiltology, along with our own scraps to make the blocks. Our color theme was aqua, blue, green, orange and gray. It's hard to tell in the photos, but we used Lizzy House's pearl bracelet in sandbox for the background fabric. I'm glad we went with the sandbox, it looks great against the bright colors we used without being too stark.
I loved the process of making this quilt, and the bright colors make me so happy! I have been enjoying looking at everyone else's finished quilts, and I can't wait to see how my partner Amy's quilt turns out!
Because we swapped for 5 months, and the top only requires 9 blocks, I did have an extra block which I turned into a cushion.
I'll be linking up my finished quilt on the Supernova Swap Flickr group.
This is also one of my finishes for Q1 of the 2015 FAL. I've actually finished 5/9 of my projects, but haven't posted the rest of them. Better get on it!
Happy Valentine's Day!
