Here's a little inspiration for your Friday:
"Spiral Squared," by Wendy Sheppard of Ivory Spring. Wendy used the Zest collection from Kanvas, paired with white, to create her geometric design.

We asked Wendy to tell us more about this cool quilt:
What did you find appealing about the Zest fabrics? I was attracted to Zest by the geometric designs. I am a geometry-oriented person, and my heart sang when I saw the fabrics in yellow and gray colorways.
The backing fabric.
How do you envision this quilt being used?
Though contemporary in design, I can actually see the quilt display in an old fashioned home decor setting for a contrasting accent. The machine quilting is beautiful! Tell us about it.
The white negative space was perfect for quilting. Since the width isn't too wide, I decided to just do textured quilting to let the fabrics really shine. A note to machine quilters - such negative space is perfect for practicing a quilting motif because any mistakes will be masked in the overall look of the quilt.
