Today was an all day (9 am to 4 pm) quilting session at the church. We do this two Saturdays a month September through June.
My project for the day was to work on quilting one of my donations quilts that will go to the hospital's Passages program.
The pattern I started with was a free download from Craftsy.
Although it was designed with four sections of color running top to bottom I didn't want mine to be that big so I cut only three colors. When I laid them out in these vertical bars I didn't like it so I mixed the colors all together.
This has such a modern, graphic look that I decided to quilt it with converging lines running top to bottom. It really reinforces the modern look.
The name came about because these colored bars remind me of those sugar-filled straws that children so love.
