Day 41-of 100 Days of Quilts
Rumba on the boardwalk
Today we are back to posting quilts. And since it is snowing AGAIN, I am sifting through the files to find another hot quilt. I love this Rumba quilt. And how did we pick that name anyway? Here is a question for you. Do you name your quilts? Why not? Have some fun with that. And don't mearly name them after the pattern that you made it from. Be creative.
Anyhow, the Rumba quilt is simple, and bold. As you can see, it is based on a traditional Courthouse Steps block, but we changed strip widths is some of the blocks, so that the quilt had more interest. We mixed bright colors, and we also made sure that we had a good balance of print sizes. Making this quilt again, and using only large bold prints would give the finished project a completely different look. In fact - since winter isn't ending this year, I just might have time to sew another version.
See you tomorrow.
