This quilt has been fun to put together. I've had a layered cake of Simply Color in my fabric cabinet for what seems like ages and I'm really glad I finally put it to good use.
The city of Memphis recently finished this bicycle archway for the bicycle trails throughout the city, and I new this would be the perfect location to take pictures with this fabric collection. I didn't take into consideration just how tall it was, or how close an extremely busy road was to it. It was difficult getting a good picture and this was the best one.
I liked being able to create the columns by color. I was a bit disappointed there wasn't enough pink to create it's own, but then the splash of pink throughout adds a bit of a modern flare.
This is also the first time I did free-motion quilting on a quilt. It's nothing fancy, but it was a big leap for me. I'm looking forward to growing in this area.
I found this print at Joann's for the back. It's a fun design and it brings in most of the colors from the front. My son was also playing peek-a-boo with me from behind the quilt trying to make me laugh while I was taking pictures. He's such a goofy kid.
I finished off the quilt with an aqua binding which tied in both sides of the quilt.
