Another Pantone challenge, I'm officially addicted!

2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge: Radiant Orchid



My mini quilt for the Radiant Orchard Pantone 2014 Challenge…...



Title:"At the Crossroads"
19 x 15 1/2" (mini quilt entry)


Top Fabric: crazy pieced crosses (Kona solids: purple, violet, crocus, hibiscus, British periwinkle, cerise, baby blue, caribbean, olive, ash, coal, charcoal, snow. Sunprint text, Sketch- gray, Architextures by Robert Kaufman).
Back fabric: Violet peacock lane for Michael Miller

Thread: piecing: Aurifil 100% cotton in off white- 2021
             quilting: various Mettler purples, Aurifil grays- 2605, 2620, 1158, Aurifil off-white #2021
Quilting: each cross square is quilted differently

Batting: warm and natural 100% cotton
Binding: Kona snow 2" strips (narrow binding for a mini quilt)


I tried to use us many of my scrap pieces from various quilts to make this mini, once I was done, although not intentional, it somehow seemed fitting to have this mini completed in time for the Easter season.

I'm linking up to the Radiant Orchid Pantone Challenge at On the Windy Side and Play Crafts and on the Flickr pool.

  12. There's so many fun details in this quilt! I love the quilting, it adds so much gorgeous texture to this, but I also love the way the purple moves from foreground to background and how each block has its own style and whimsy and size. :) Very dynamic! It's a beautiful mini. :)
