Hi..I’m Kiera and I blog over at It’s Sew Kiki.  The Connecting Threads team was kind enough to ask me to write about my Follow the Leader quilt and their beautiful Tulane fabric.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’d had this quilt idea in my head and sketched out for a while.  I just didn’t have the right fabric for it.  I knew I wanted something bright and when I saw the Tulane line I knew it would be perfect. This fabric is just so rich and saturated with color.  It’s just beautifully vibrant and was perfect to pair with the black solid.

 

 

 

 

 

I especially liked the reds and the blues and used a lot of those in my quilt.  I backed this with Quilter’s Candy Solid in Teal and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I’m really proud of this quilt.  It’s my first original quilt design…start to finish from sketch pad to sewing table. You can’t believe the fun I had sorting through the Tulane Fat Quarters and making this quilt pop! Next up, I think I need a pillow to match the quilt!

    Ilove all of your new colors! To choose a set of colors, I think I would go with homestead and for the individual spool, I would choose (could I have them all?) Merlot and Forest.
    Thank you for having the contest.
    Diane
