Bright and Cheery Color Blast Quilt


One of my favorite patterns I have made is my color blast quilt.  The first quilt I made out of this pattern was orange and Tanya hated it.  I then made a blue batik quilt which I love and then a few tops that have not yet been finished.  Well a few months ago, when I came home from work Tanya was making this version of it.  She hated my version and I have to admit she has topped it, but she can't seem to get my name correct.  She always refers to the pattern as color burst rather then color blast.  Its kinda funny.  I guess if she wants to burst rather then blast I will let her.


I loved her choice of binding and really love the corner stones she used (the wavy lines) it gave it a neat twist.


She of course made me quilt it and as normal she wanted to torture me and had pink minky on the back.  About 2/3 quilted, I realized we had a pucker in the back and sadly she had to pull out almost 2 full rows of quilting and re-pin it to fix our pucker.  I love the finished look of minky, I hate quilting it.


This quilt was completely made of scraps from our stash and will end up on our the etsy store.

Tanya, I absolutely love this quilt. I love the colors and the design. Your name for it says it all--it is a color burst quilt because the colors just burst out of it. Beautiful! Great job!

Beautiful.... you both work so well together! And I, of course, love the colors - whether it is a blast or burst!

Take Care.

Love the quilt. I love the challenge of putting prints together well, and you have done so! Controlling the colors, controlling the scale--it worked!
