Yeah, that name. I'm not crazy about naming my quilts. I kept referring to this quilt as the turquoise, orange and yellow quilt while I was making it, so a mash-up of the colors works for me. I made the top way back in September last year during a time when I needed something quick, mindless, and cheerful while adjusting to a new life without my father in it. Thus, the bright colors and simple design.
Here is the block in isolation--bad image, I know, but I didn't have any photos of the individual blocks so I cropped heavily. My favorite fabric is that woodcut-looking print of flowers in orange.
Block Pattern: From Magic Numbers post by Sew Katie Did. Block is 14 inches square, and I made 16 in 4 rows of 4.
Fabrics: A variety of new fat quarters I collected last year, plus bits and pieces from my stash. The back is urban elementz Basix by Patricia Ritter for Northcott from 2017. I wonder if they still make it. It looks like it came in several colors and fun dots.
Batting: Fairfield 80/20.
