gene pool in reel time - Blogger's Quilt Festival

Gene Pool in Reel Time was inspired by a quilt made by Jen Kingwell.  

This fabric is designed by Zen Chic for Moda, which I purchased at the Houston market which you can read (or rather, see cool pictures) about here and here.  This fabric isn't due out for a few months.  

It's a great line of fabric for all you film critics.    

I'm entering this into the small quilt category.

quilt stats:
34 x 45 (washed)
22 fabrics - Reel Time by Zen Chic for Moda
cut (8) 3 1/2 " sqs.  of 22 fabrics (plus a few extra)
arrange 2 pluses together on design wall, sew rows across
quilting is stippled with color coordinating Aurifil thread
warm & white cotton batting by The Warm Company
pattern is a take off of "gene pool" by Jen Kingwell

It will hang nicely in our theatre (tv room)

You can read more about this quilt's making here.

Thanks for visiting.  Now go see the rest of the quilts at Blogger's Quilt Festival.
And thank you, once again, to the ever so clever Amy for masterminding the festival!
