If a man does not keep pace with his companions perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.
Let him step to the music he hears however measured or far away.
Henry David Thoreau
My finished quilt entry in the Pantone Challenge for 2015
A Different Drummer
Original design, Mary Menzer
This quilt is a modge-podge of different designer fabrics - I used Kona Brick as my jumping off point to match Marsala (see some of my fabric selection here), bringing other fabrics into the fold
I used Andover Chambray in dark gray in the sashing and for some of the squares, other fabrics are Oakshott, Kona, Alison Glass, Kaffe Fassett, and a couple of my Aborigine fabrics from Australia.
In this post I have progress photos and a photo of the top before quilting
the measurement before quilting was 56" x 71"
After quilting with a variety of Aurifil 40 wt, 28 wt and a YLI jean stitch thread the measurement is 53 1/2" x 67" - has not been washed - for the binding I used the chambray, the batting is Matilda cotton /silk blend.
I love the warmth of the Marsala colors, mixed with the texture of the chambray and the white textured linen I used for the stripey bits. The colored heavier weight quilting threads add dimension and texture also.
