2018 Pantone Quilt Challenge

I shared my plans for the 2018 Pantone Quilt Challenge with you last month, and my quilt is now finished!  The challenge was to use the Pantone colour of the year, which for 2018 is Ultra Violet.

My inspiration came from Roman mosaics, and I also wanted the quilt to look like a picture, so I added a grey Essex linen border and mosaic frame around the Highland Cow.

The mosaic is strip pieced and made from lots of scraps, including pieces of metallic Essex linen in black, navy and gold.  I quilted the border with lots of straight lines and added some hand quilting – in purple of course – to the cow’s fringe.

I tried to take a photo of the sparkle, but it is hard to capture!  Hopefully you can see the gold of the background and silver in her fringe here.
