The next block is now up!
I finished up this quilt last week. I’d been working on it for quite a bit of time… It’s basically the quilt version of these placemats that are in Quilt Scene. The quilting took me forever and I have to admit – while I love the results, it’s hard to stay motivated to get this dense straight line quilting done. But now it’s finished and I couldn’t be happier with it!
The orange is a shot cotton and in person really adds to the quilt – those shot cottons are so pretty with the depth of color they have.
Here’s a detail of the back… always easier to see the quilting on the back!
I pulled some grays (because let’s be honest, when do I not??) and added what is fast becoming one of my favorite neutral fabrics, Robert Kaufman’s Yarn Dyed Essex Linen, Flax. It reads like a linen but is easier to work with since it’s a cotton blend. It’s gonna go so well with these lil’ polar bears!
I made the first few cuts into the fabric this weekend and look forward to putting together a little (boy) baby quilt!
I finished up this quilt!
Lots of dense straight line quilting that fills in the piecing pattern and then continues across the rest of the quilt.
Here’s a detail of the quilting on the back… All that stopping and starting with the straight lines takes a lot of time, but it’s so worth the end results!
Happy weekend to all of you!
