Tic Tac Whoa! Quilt – QuiltCon Reject
How fun is this new quilt? It is named Tic Tac Whoa! This quilt has the distinction of being one my two of the 1200 rejected quilts from QuiltCon West 2016, which is awesome because now I can share it here!
The quilt is a large, bed-size quilt at around 70″ x 90″ and is made using applique techniques from my book Learn To Sew Easy Curves.
The design was inspired by tic-tac-toe, hence the name, Tic Tac Whoa! The 9-square grid from the game evolved keeping “O’s” in all the boxes and then moving the boxes. You never know where/when a design will happen.
Iza Pearl Garden Party Tango Fat Quarter bundle makes up the appliqued lines and circle designs. The circles are prepared with a reverse-applique center in two sizes, 10″ circles and 12″ circles.
The edge-to-edge quilting is done using a giant cinnamon roll motif. Is that the official name? Cinnamon Roll? Probably not…. but that’s what you get when you blog around breakfast time.
I had to impress upon my assistant that the quilt was very white (front and back) and couldn’t drag along the ground. Clearly, that meant: carry it on head. hope I can see out. To be 13yo must be a magical time…. Thank you for not letting it drag the ground!! You rock and roll!!
