I wanted to finish Bohemian Spark for Valentine's Day, and while I didn't quite make that deadline ... at least it's still February! Both the pattern and the fabric (Just Red) are designed by Brigitte Heitland of Zen Chic.
I was very excited to make this quilt, but it was certainly one of the tougher ones I've made. It was paper-pieced, which I usually love, but the pieces are huge, which made them more challenging to line up correctly, and to add to the difficulty, the edges of most of these blocks are bias. I breathed a sigh of relief after it came together, and most of the points mostly match.
I used just two designs in this quilt: straight lines and swirls. I kept the swirls to the lighter colored fabric, as I don't like dense quilting with contrasting thread.
The straight lines were actually quite challenging because they're so long. There was a lot of fudging and guesstimation going on, but overall I'm pretty happy with it.
This quilt really has such a visual impact! I haven't done a red and pink quilt ... ever, so I'm happy to have this one as it really stands out.
