It is done! Finally. This was a quilt designed on request by a local quilt shop. I actually really enjoyed the challenge. The Flutterbright fabric line from Freedom Fabric was the focus, we included other blending fabrics that coordinated well that Highland Quilts had in their shop. Several techniques are employed, including paper piecing (4 corners of the center medallion), strip piecing for individual blocks so as not to use up too much fabric and yet quickly piece them, panel pieces, and using long lengths of fabrics to efficient use and piece this quilt together. The pattern has cutting layouts to help you utilize the fabric effectively. Highland Quilts will be offering this as a class, if you're interested, please contact them to sign-up.

Here are front and back images.

Almost seems like crystals would be a nice embellishment in the right spots to help it be even brighter, but for now, this is how it will head to the March Trends event at EESchenk in Portland.
