100 Days – Week of Prints – Featured Quilt 3

Sara Soelberg combined monochromatic prints to create the fun and graphic X and O shapes in her Tic Tac Toe quilt.

Here’s what Sara had to say about herself and her quilt:

“This quilt was inspired by a whole lot of ‘X’s floating around in blog land this past winter. Every time I saw one (like Sew Mama Sew’s Urban Hug Pillow), it screamed tic-tac-toe to me. My sweet sister in law was having her third baby (second boy), and I wanted to celebrate his arrival with something fun. To me this quilt is modern, because it has such bright colors, mixed prints, and a bold design. For the quilting I did a simple stipple — my very favorite stitch.

As a quilter, I think I am just past beginner and well into “holy-heck-what-can-I-quilt-next”? I love every part of quilting: cutting, piecing, quilting, and binding, but my very favorite moment is pulling out the crinkly goodness from a warm dryer. I’m pretty sure that’s actually the definition of heaven.”
