friendship beads quilt

The OKCMQG displays quilts every year at the OKC Winter Quilt Show and we also have a booth to answer questions about Modern quilting.  I made a quilt with the quick curve ruler that I call "Friendship Beads."


I quilted in my go-to straight-line machine quilting and I used variegated thread to give interest and texture to the quilt.  The quilt didn't show up well on the black background of the curtains, but one of my friends said that it drew you in to see it closer and then the quilting could be appreciated : )  Aren't friends wonderful!

I used an OOP Kaffe Fassett fabric, Organic stripe in green, that I had been saving for a special quilt. I luv how it looks on the back with the quilting.

It will make a very cheery colorful addition to any wall or space it's used. Do you like the curved ruler? I've often thought about getting one.
