Boogie Fever - Totally Groovy Finish

I got the Boogie Fever......got to boogie down.....I've got the Boogie Fever....I think it's going around.

Sometimes a song gets stuck in my head.  Boogie Fever was the one that got stuck yesterday as I feverishly quilted away at this Groovy quilt:


Now mind you, I don't know all the lyrics to the song, just the opening chorus.  Disco seems to go with this quilt, don't you think?

I love this pattern and the use of solids.  It really gives you a chance to get fun with the quilting, and even with matching threads, the designs really pop off the quilt.


 I especially had fun with those modern squares (I've been wanting to try them out for a while now), and I was trying to go for a liberated chevron there in the yellow.  Not sure if I accomplished that or not, but I like it.  Of course no quilt of mine would be complete without some swirls somewhere, and when I see solid gray I can't help but think of pebbles. I think the solids looked so nice, I used them on the back too, design by me.


Well, there you have it.  My take on the Totally Groovy QAL.  I think I am just in time to link up with the other participants.

What do you think?  Did I do OK?

  7. Love the quilting on this one, I think it's great how you've alternated between circles and angular shapes, a great way to create movement between the sections. And the colours are great, they make a real modern take on the quilt.

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
