I recently finished what I’m calling my Super Donut quilt. A lot of the inspiration for this quilt is described in my post on my Donut Quilt, finished several weeks prior to this one. And the piecing was fairly similar to that quilt as well – I cut a two paper templates from a 8.5″x11″ printed page clipped from the entire Photoshop design.
For this Super Donut, I used Alison Glass’ Kaleidoscope opal fabric, which is a woven shot cotton with a mix of aqua and white threads, although it reads as a solid from a short distance. I mixed this with a white cotton from my stash (not sure which solid white it is). My quilt back has two shades of coral from my stash as well, which compliment the opal nicely. Opal is also used for the binding.
I deviated from the quilting I did on the regular Donut Quilt, because I found quilting curves to be difficult. I did straight line quilting alternating between horizontal and vertical lines throughout the non-pieced part of the quilt, in the shape of concentric circles. I did stitch-the-ditch-ish quilting in the pieced section, and another round of mirror quilting on that as well. All of the quilting was done with Aurifil 50wt white thread on my Juki domestic machine with a walking foot.
More Pics Later?
I’m hoping to get this quilt in a couple of shows, so for now, enjoy my #wip photos from IG and the above shot. Maybe more later!!
