Pois versus rayures

Or polka dots versus stripes!

This lovely design is by Fabienne Chabrolin and was published in Quiltmania No.89 May/June 2012. She has produced loads of other great variations of this design too, take a look at this flickr album.

My version is fairly close to the original design, using mainly Kaffe Fassett stripes, shot cottons and polka dots plus a few other prints.

The ellipses are machine appliqu├ęd using white thread and blanket stitch. I had a lot of fun putting together colour combinations and had a hard time NOT making them all look like fried eggs!

I deviated from the pattern when it came to the quilting, keeping it simple! (You can see the quilting on the original version here)

This little quilt finished at 43.5 inches square, and I am very glad I finally got around to making it!

Yep, this was also on my finish along list at the start of the quarter :)
