Don't Touch Me

I am proud to finally present "Don't Touch Me".  A quilt in which the colors only touch at the points and no color touches itself.

The back is lovingly called "Hug and Make Up."  I made all the colors touch each other.  Even the corner squares are actually two triangles touching each other.





The quilting is white and variegated thread.  All of the large and medium triangles have triangles in them, and the small outside triangles were also quilting.


The only thing I really don't like is how I tied the threads in the back.  About half way through I started tucking the tails back into the quilt and that looked a lot better.

One last picture...the wind helped get the placement just right.  I bound it in white so that no color would touch itself there either..

Also, I'm almost done with the pattern for this.  Is anyone interested in testing it for me?

Since I finally have a finish (!!)  I'll be posting to several places over the next week...Plum and June (Monday), Quilting by the River (Tuesday), Fabric Tuesday,  Whoop-Whoop Friday , Find a Friend Friday, and  Show off Friday.  Hmm, it appears that several of the places that only do finishes are on hold.  Oh well.

  3. Wow, great quilt! How long did it take you to figure out the color placement so nothing touched? If you need testers, I'd love to give it a try!

  10. What a fun quilt. I love both front and back and the white binding!
    And, the same thing could be done with pastels or intense Amish colors.
