Remember this post? Well, that quilt is now completed! Many thanks to Charlie and Ryan who hosted the quilt-a-long at Patchwork Squared (their joint blog). I learned some new techniques and enjoyed seeing what the other participants choose for fabrics…also some of the original blocks they developed for the center block.
This quilt is made up entirely of Kona Cotton solids – in my case I chose one of the pre-packaged color combinations of ash, white, mango, coal and turquoise (courtesy of the Fat Quarter Shop which sells a vast array of Kona Cotton Solids). Each block measures approximately 12″ (finished) and the quilt is sashed and bordered with the Kona Cotton Ash. The finished quilt measures 42.5″ X 43″ – which is a smallish lap quilt.
I pieced the back, creating a unique design in the center with left over fabrics.
The batting is warm and natural white cotton batting; and the binding is Kona Coal. I love the meandering stipple design, which I chose to use for the quilting pattern.
And of course, I put a label on this one:
I am really loving solid quilts these days – they used to scare me (I mean, come on, every mistake is just there to be seen!)…but I am beginning to gain some confidence by just diving in and going for it!
