But what would a TOTALLY random patchwork look like? A bit like this ...
and this ...
Comprised of equal parts of 4 Kaufman Kona solids on the front (Straw, OD Green, Parsley and Caramel), cut to 3.5" making ~3" patchwork squares. I let them 'fall where they may' ... there was no eyeballing or planning. After washing, it ended up just shy of 48" x 60". It's quilted in a large meandering pattern with tan thread and the binding is a remnant I picked up at JoAnns a couple of months ago.
I have to say hooray for the color chart I bought from Pink Chalk Fabrics a few months back, as I was able to use it to pick out and order the Kona solids that I wanted ... from concept to finished quilt took less that 8 days ... thanks to speedy shipping from both Pink Chalk Fabrics and the Fabric Shack!
The back is mainly Kaufman Kona Mustard, pieced with 2.5" cut (~2.0" sewn) window frame squares.
The inspiration came from the tile work in my master bathroom -- the front from the wall and the back from the tile treatment around the window.
While it clearly matches my home ... this one is also a gift and will go to my cousin's daughter who just bought her first home!
