Hello Friends, my “In & Out” quilt is featured in the Spring 2013 of Quilter’s World‘s Special Interest Publication “QUILT & EASY QUILTS”! See that little insert on the top left corner of the cover — yeap, that’s my “In & Out”!
The interweaving effect is achieved by using the cross block colored in two different ways. Pretty cool, eh?
I used Riley Blake‘s Avignon fabric collection to make “In & Out”.
You may recall, I had used the fabrics from the same collection to make “Not too Square” that is featured in The Quilter’s December 2012/January 2013 issue.
Now, back to “In & Out” in different poses…

Quilting was done mainly on the negative space to highlight the printed fabrics. I find that feathers make great “fillers”. The quilting was done using Aurifil‘s Mako 50 Cotton threads over Hobbs Tuscany Silk batting. The white square area you see is about 2″ x 2″ in size – the image is out of focus a little as I am still getting used my camera settings.
I think the design itself is quite versatile, and I can see the quilt different color schemes. What would be your color palette of choice for this quilt?
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to be back to chat with you again tomorrow.
