Snappy So Happy

Snap Pop! was the name of the lovely, bright coloured charm square pack used in this quilt.  I was looking for something funky, modern and bright to make this girl quilt.

When I took the quilt outside for to photograph it, the dark, gloomy winter day seemed not so dull anymore.  It certainly brought a smile to my face when the colours seemed to simply pop against the winter hue.

Quilted with a lightly variegated pale yellow King Tut thread in a swirl design to contrast against the geometry of the squares, I then framed the quilt with a green binding to pull everything together,

Sometimes simplicity in patchwork patterns and quilt design just works.

This is quilt #5 of 12 planned for the year.
