52 x 66
All of the fabrics on the front are hand dyed except the pink and yellow. I used a ready for dye cotton fabric. After washing this quilt 3 times, it still doesn't have that same soft feel as my other quilts.
The pattern was easy, I cut up a bunch of 2.5 inch squares so I could control where the darker squares landed. But you could easily have strip pieced the blocks.
I found a matching moda marble in red for the back and some blue mirage stuff in my stash that was almost the exact color.
I ended up with several knots on the back (around 8). I have since loaded some practice fabric and used the rest of the bobbin (and several more) and didn't get a single knot. I quilted fast, slow, meander, loop, feather, back and forth. The knots were spread out all over the quilt instead of being in one general area. Don't know what happened, but I am glad that it seems to have stopped.
I also had some bleeding on the white after washing with 2 color catchers. I washed it again with 2 more and some synthrapol (we use this when we tie dye shirts) and it all seemed to come out. I thought that was why the quilt wasn't soft, so I washed it a third time, but nothing changed. Anyone have a good way to soften this quilt?
