I am so excited to talk about this quilt that I finished for the Slice booth at Quilt Market using my Ashbury Heights slice card and fabric! I am also entering this into Amy Creativeside Quilt Festival!
I love the modern take on making simple blocks. Using the phone applique cut outs from my Slice cartridge, I took some solids and my Ashbury Heights fabric to create this quilt. It's so easy to place some interfacing on the back of fabric, apply it to the slice board, place the slice tool on top and watch the magic happen as it slices the fabric to the shape of my perfect phones. The alphabet even works like magic. Before I sew the gray strips on, I satin stitches all around the phones in matching threads. I feel it gives it a nice finish and it holds the applique shape in place.
There is something about using the gray, just makes this fabric pop. I love how rich the colors are and how vibrant they showcase those cute little phones. Here it is at the Slice Crafts booth at Quilt Market!
Thank you for Crazy Old Ladies in taking a picture for me! Kayli Taylor quilted this quilt for me and didn't she do just an amazing job. The loops all around the gray in gray thread, gives it such a fun modern feel. And the stippling in each tiny square is amazing. She really captured this quilt beautifully!
So the story behind this quilt? It's simply inspired by the song, "Call Me Maybe!" Just as the whole line was captured in a 1960's feel with a modern twist. I always seem to have an iconic piece in each of my fabric lines and the phones were by pop of iconic.
Thanks for letting me share this quilt and I hope that you love it as much as I do! Please go and vote at The Quilt Festival!
