The “Wild Thing” Top is Together

My prompt for the Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild “Bee Inspired” improv challenge was “Shapes.” And, I set up a palette of clear, bright SOLID colors and hoped people would have fun playing with making shapes.

It took me some time to get the wonderful blocks I received into a coherent quilt top, but I’m really happy with how it came out.

The top is 87 wide by 81 long—so I found an equally wide 108-wide backing in Belfast yesterday at Fiddlehead Artisan Supply. I’m going to bind with the bright aqua that is in the quilt and have ordered some aqua thread for the longarm.

The top does seem to be a happy “Wild Thing.” I know I’m happy with it.
