madder sew-a-long at Humble Quilts, completed

Lori at Humble Quilts hosted another small quilt sew-a-long with a madder print theme.
I have maybe 2 madders prints, so instead decided to use the 2016 Pantone color(s) of the year, rose quartz and serenity. The pink is a Kona solid, I think peony. The blues are 30s repro. The colors are a bit more true in the progress photo below.

The whole thing has a 1950s vibe to it. It loses some movement of Lori's in my use of just one solid for the background, but it takes it in a different direction with the shapes having less to do with each other in blocks and gives more of an all over effect.

Measures about 24 inches square.
Machine quilted by manipulating the meandering stitch on my Bernina 1530.
Thanks, Lori, for another great sew!

Beautiful! The color really doesn't "madder" does it! Love the softness of this one.

Love Wendy's "madder" comment and agree! Your interpretation is terrific and what makes sharing fun -- we get to see and appreciate many outcomes.
