This is part of a series of posts about the quilts from Modern Patchwork. I'm highlighting a different quilt each month, and will be remaking each of the book quilts in some way. This month, I made a neon version of the Honey Quilt. You can see my earlier post about it here.
I had all kinds of plans for photographing this finished quilt, some of which may have involved a black light, but I ended up finishing it just in time to meet my shipping deadline, so I had to settle for a quick photo shoot complete with a lot of dead leaves. (Why all the dead leaves at this time of year?!)
The back is different from the quilt in the book. I wanted to do something vaguely 80's-style to go with the neon, so I cut a bunch of 9" tall 60° triangles and arranged them in a giant heart shape on my design wall. Then, I just filled in the background, adding a few more triangles in the negative space.
The neutral solids in this quilt are both Michael Miller Cotton Couture - Bright White on the front and Charcoal on the back.
