PORTAL Modern wall quilt 31 by 38 inches
This modern wall quilt has a minimal yet compelling design. A “window” made of colorful wedges seems to float on a background of ombre fabric in muted shades of teal, turquoise, aqua and white. The color in the window – blue, orange, purple, berry and aqua – really pops against this subtle background.
The dense, free-motion quilting adds another layer of design and textural interest to this modern textile wall hanging. I stitched swirls in the background ombre and echo lines in the wedge section.
The back of the wall quilt in navy shows off the free-motion stitching design. Unbleached cotton batting. Dark blue binding was attached securely with machine stitching.
After construction, the wall quilt was machine washed in cold, tumble dried on low for 10 minutes, then removed from the dryer while partially damp and laid flat to air dry. If you continue this care, no further shrinkage will occur.
