I have this color combo love right now that involves greys and mustards and I just had to make a quilt with these colors. I’m picturing lots of variations on this theme in the future! Combine that with my love of Half Square Triangles and you have this quilt. I’ve been staying up way too late at night working on this. We’ve also had some windy and rainy weather lately – courtesy of Hurricane Patricia – so it’s allowed me to ditch some of my Fall yard work in favor of sewing and finishing this quilt!
I used a variety of favorite quilting fabrics for this, including the ever awesome Rainwalk Ripple by Anna Graham. I can’t get enough of that fabric. It’s a canvas fabric, but sewed up nicely right alongside the quilting cottons. I also used a couple I pulled from the beautiful Magnolia line by Alisse Courter. And, since I always love a little text fabric sneaked in, I used a little bit of Robert Kaufman Scribble Notes in White. This makes me very happy.
The solid color is Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton Ash – such a great neutral and my favorite solid. And the binding is Squared Elements in Shadow.
I did simple straight quilting, at 3.5 stitches/inch, which I really like and went well with the lines of the blocks. Each block was trimmed to 5 inches square.
I used Warm & Plush cotton batting, which I washed and dried before using, even though it has no scrim. I live dangerously. It worked out.
My favorite part of the quilt is doing the mitered binding at the end.
The finished size of this quilt is 44″ x 54″, a very nice lap size quilt to snuggle with, just big enough for two.
