I’m so in LOVE with this quilt. Perfect for my half-square triangle class and value class coming up in a couple weeks.
One of my favorite quilts E-V-E-R for sure. Maybe a hair behind Split Decision.
I did remove some of my first quilting and went with horizontal lines at 1.25″ apart.
It really allows the design to shine. And while we are on the subject of design, I’ve been asked about the layout for this quilt. There was no plan, seriously. Make your half-square-triangles and then put them up on the design wall. Don’t over think it.
However, if you want to play with value you could come up with some stellar designs.
I think I’ve found my go-to wedding gift for sure and already have a bevy of color combos nestled on my pin-board.
I was happy I used the Lush print for the back, it added a softness that can disappear with denser line quilting. I finished it off with binding made from the same purple shot cotton that forms some of the triangles on the front.
Pretty plain Jane and pretty pretty.
Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend. Don’t spend all your money on fabric sales.
