Atomic Connections....Finally Complete!

I'm embarrassed to say this quilt has been sitting in my studio with the binding pinned since September. It's so great to see it on a bed and ready to use!
The KC Modern Quilt guild had a hand sewing Saturday at Bon Bon Atelier in Westport on Saturday and this is one of the projects I brought to work on. Thanks for hosting us, Betsy. We had a ball! I didn't quite get it done on Saturday, but I pulled it out last night and finished it up. So glad I did!
I really love the simplicity and at the same time the complexity of this design. None of the atomic singles, pairs or triplets are the same. I also adore how it looks on the bed. I lucked out on that!Angela's quilting takes it to a new level....it's a bit like a Where's Waldo quilt...you need to cuddle in it and get close up to enjoy all the unique twists in the quilting.
I'm kinda smitten with the back too....this quilt nourishes my cravings for orange and nostalgia for the 70's.

My word, it's amazing. This really shows (as do so many of your other quilts) that the devil is in the details. It seems simple, but that quilting is so incredible.

That is absolutely awesome! Would love to see it in person...maybe next month at the LAMQG meeting? Either way, looking forward to meeting you-you are such a rock star!

Elsa said...

just absolutely wonderful. the color, the composition, everything. I want one!

Melissa said...

This is one of my favorites that you've created, Jacquie (there are a few!). And all the negative space is perfect for Angela's beautiful quilting.

Do you remember what the print is that you used on the back? I'm hesitant with orange but would like to be brave and try it. I like the blues and greens that are in the print. It would make a good inspiration fabric to start with.

Brakmack said...

INCREDIBLE!!!! Thanks for the inspiration (as always!).

This is fantastic! Orange is my favorite color, and it really pops against all that white. And the quilting is just amazing.
