This quilt was something I sketched out nearly two years ago and it languished in my design notebook until I pulled into EQ a little over a year ago and shared it with the lovely folks at Modern Quilts Unlimited. I had a crazy idea of using the Riley Blake neon solids that had just come out at the time, and thought it would make a really bold quilt...bold is quite possibly a giant understatement with this quilt!
Photographs cannot possibly show you how bright this quilt is. I literally felt like I needed to put sunglasses on just to be in the same room with those neon fabrics when I was working on this quilt. It was really comical when I unfolded the quilt to show to a friend before I sent it off and she shielded her eyes. That being said, I really love the design of this quilt, and I think the neon solids make it even more unforgettable.
