Adding a Pop of Color

This quilt segment shown at the top of this page was designed by Annie's for the 2015 Row by Row Experience event.  The horizon line is created using a "Pop of Color" technique that can be incorporated into almost any quilt.

<---
1.  Cut the color pop strip to the required size.  In this case, 1" wide.

 

                                             --->
2.  Mark the center of the strip (1/2") using a mechanical pencil.

3.  Lay the orange strip (pop of color) on top of and in line with the edge of the adjoining strip.  In this case the top of the ocean.

 

                                             --->
4.  Stitch the two pieces together along the pencil line.

                                             --->
6.  Line up the other adjoining strip, in this case the bottom of the sky, and sew a 1/4" seam.  This reveals a 1/4" strip of orange material.
