Dipped

The quilting is done and the binding is on. I can call Dipped a finished quilt.
Pattern by Modern Quilts from Classic Designs
 I wanted the quilting to mimic paint dripping down the quilt, from light to dark, so sewed organic lines with my walking foot and turquoise Aurifil 50 thread.
The solid fabrics are various aqua blues that I had purchased on close-out from Connecting Threads. Both the backing and grey background print on the front are Mod-century by Moda. Orange dots by Amy Butler were perfect for the binding.
 Measuring 30 inches square, the little quilt will be a good table topper. For some reason the backing fabric looks like shish-kabobs to me and makes me want to heat up the grill!

You can find the pattern for this quilt, along with lots of other beauties, in Andie Johnson's great book, Modern Designs for Classic Quilts.
