Mandala Quilt

Happy New Year! I'm just back home from a few days with family to celebrate a belated Christmas. There was a new baby to snuggle and my son and his fiance flew in to join in the fun.
While I was traveling I put the finishing touches on my Mandala quilt.

The theme of the recent Art Quilts Around the World challenge was Mandala.
I used some of my favorite hand dyed colors, fuchsia with a touch of orange, an olive/chartreuse blend, golden yellow and two purples. I love quilts that have a "touch me" appeal to them. I used a purple hand dyed velvet to add texture to the quilt.

Wonderful mix of bright and intense colors; love the velvet! My DD has fallen in love with a quilt pattern which includes silk dupioni and cotton velveteen, both in deep, dark brown. Texture and touch, very inviting!

What a beautiful piece, Chris! I like the touch of velvet. Also, I saw the completed baby quilt on Patsy's blog. That turned out great. What a lucky baby.
