This ‘Seed Burst’ quilt was made with a dark blue batik background so the seeds could ‘burst’ from the background.
I chose an assortment of Malam Batiks for the seeds.
I set about making the seeds and then hung the background fabric onto the design wall and pinned the seeds onto it, checking for balance of colours and light and shade.
Once I was happy with the layout, I began the process of fusing and sewing on the seeds.
I added borders onto this quilt to make it a queen comforter size ( not quite a queen but bigger than a lap.)
Next it was time to quilt the top.
I used a gold thread for the seeds and a matching blue thread for the background and a bit of gold thread on the background in a few spots to add interest.
I love taking a quilt off the longarm and making sure my plan for quilting has married with the quilt design.
I am so happy with this quilt, I love the way the seeds pop from the background.
If you would like all of the instructions to make this quilt, you can purchase the pattern in the ‘shop’ section of the top menu bar.
