Karma Four-Patch Top is Done!

There was a new project that I shared a few weeks ago, the Karma 4-patch blocks made from a prize won at the guild auction. Those blocks have now been joined into a finished quilt top!

Karma 4-Patch, 45.5" x 55.25"

Most of the fabrics used in this quilt were from the line "Karma" by Benartex, and they have a definite 1970's feel. It's a crazy mix of designs and colors that I tried to lay out in a somewhat cohesive manner by running matching blocks in diagonal lines. Leftover fabric strips were added as borders to finish the whole thing off. Here's a closer look at some of the fabrics.

Linking up with:

  1. I went back to see the story of the fabrics and your design choices. It *is* busy but it looks great!

  2. I agree with Nann - it's busy but it really really works well. Very pretty!

  3. It does give you that 70's vibe - what fun!!!

  4. Your strategy worked. Those fabrics are busy, but those strong diagonal lines really add a cohesiveness to the quilt. Great job!

  5. Congratulations on a beautiful finish! Karma is very special. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.

  6. While the fabrics themselves may be busy, the layout you've chosen really brings it all together and makes for a beautiful finish!
