So, three years later, I searched my own name to try to find a post I made, this link came up, and I once again clicked on the thumbnail thinking this was a Stevie Wonder quilt.  Obviously, that is what you have made here.  Smiley

Those are completely awesome!  I'm... a bit of a Golden Girls fan, as you may be able to tell from my icon.  Ha ha!  Great job.  Smiley

So my question is, do you have a single brother?  -Cause I'd love to be your sister-in-law if you'd make me one of these!!  Wink  Really pretty - I love it!
Ha ha!  No single brothers... do YOU have a single brother?  Because then we'd be in the same situation... Smiley

And, thank you!  That's to everyone who's taken the time to say nice things.  Smiley

Very nice quilt! I'm trying to get an idea of the scale --- did you use charm packs for the printed bits? What are the finished dimensions? I'm hoping to bang out one more quilt before our bambino makes his appearance in the next week or two, and you have majorly inspired me!
Thanks so much!  I'm not sure of too many exact measurements... I never use patterns or pre-packaged fabrics!  What I can tell you is that I cut 6 inch squares of each fabric. I put a white square and a blue/green square on top of each other, right sides facing, and sewed around all four sides so it was all closed in. Then I cut each one from corner to corner (like an X) and got four blocks (of a white triangle and a coloutred triangle) from each. Hope that makes sense!

It looks gorgeously crisp and modern! Very beautiful! Did you follow a pattern for the color placement, choose it by eye, or have it be completely randomized?
Thanks so much!  I didn't follow any kind of pattern at all; however, I have learned that winging it and going with totally random never looks random!  Random really does have to be planned.  Smiley  I just eyeballed it and tried not to put one colour next to itself.  I sewed a bunch of strips and just placed them so it worked out.  The only thing I did find was that I had to try to space the yellow blocks out kind of evenly... a large space without a spot of yellow to brighten it seemed pretty obvious.

Love the blue against the white!  Good way to use up smaller pieces in one's stash!

Is the back white also?
Yes, the back is all white!  I find that any bright colours on the back of a white quilt usually makes it look dingy (if it doesn't shine right through), so I stick with the basics!

Thanks so much!  I wanted something modern, but not too overwhelmingly so.

A Christmas gift for my new and super-snuggly nephew, Simon.
