Finished 1001 Peeps Supernova Quilt

In 2011, the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild formed a little quilting bee with some of its members. August was my month and I asked the girls to make me blocks for a Supernova quilt.

I had been saving some fat quarters of the blue and purple colorways from Lizzy House's 1001 Peeps collection. I love how the colors work together in this quilt.

My friend, Barbie, quilted this quilt for me. I asked her to do randomly wavy lines and I love how it turned out!

I used the castle turrets print to add mitered borders around the blocks. These were a first for me, so there's room for improvement, but they didn't turn out half bad.

I had several various sized cuts of a few of the prints in the line that I had bought on sale at Hawthorne Threads. Pink Castle Fabrics has some of the prints on sale right now too. I pieced them in random width strips for the backing.

For the binding, I used the blue illuminated and turret prints.

I was never a huge fan of this line, but I have to say, this quilt is GREAT. Your choices really complements the fabrics and shows them in their very best light. Nice!!
