I can't think of a better way to kick off the launch of my new blog than with this fun quilt!! I am over joyed to finally share my rendition of Violet Craft's Jungle Abstractions: The Lion! I have aptly named him Kaleidoscope King, although I really wanted to call it "I am the Walrus" but was afraid there would be too much confusion.
I first bought this pattern at QuiltCon 2016 in Pasadena. I had absolutely NO clue how to paper pieces but I was so enamored with the geometric design and scale of the design that I bought it anyway. Fast forward two years, an FPP class or two, a sparkly bundle of Vanessa Christensen's Ombre Confetti Metallic and voila! a vision began to emerge. I printed off the coloring sheet, grabbed my markers and began matching the markers to the fabrics. The resulting coloring sheet looked like a hot mess but I could see that my vision was going to work.
