My Loulouthi HST quilt top is finished, and not a day too soon to make the entry deadline for the Festival of Half Square Triangles at Canoe Ridge Creations. Actually I finished the quilt top last Wednesday night, but I haven't had a chance to take photos of it until today. Thankfully the weather cooperated nicely!
I am calling this new quilt design Sunglow. The gradual shifting of light to dark from the center of the quilt outward reminds me of that moment during a sunset when the sun sits just above the horizon and becomes glowing and ember-like. I think that the rainbow of colors in the Loulouthi line really lends itself well to capturing the range of hues in a spectacular sunset.
I designed this quilt to use only two charm packs, one extra yard of one print (summer totem), and a couple yards of quilter's linen since my precious stash of Loulouthi was quite small. I really like how the negative space interplays with the printed fabrics and feels integrated into the design, while also helping to stretch the mileage of the charm packs.
And just because I couldn't resist, here is an photo with the sun shining through the back. :)
I also made this quilt top in conjunction with the My Precious Quilt Along and the Sew Lux April Stitch and Share Challenge.
