I'm so excited I finished this quilt just in time for the Bloggers' Quilt Festival! It's so fun and inspiring to look through all the other quilts, hopefully you will enjoy mine too!
The pattern is based on the cover quilt of Modern Log Cabin Quilting. My quilt finished around 52x68 and is perfect for snuggling on the couch.
This quilt it made of all Anna Maria Horner fabric and Kona solid (Bone, Ash, or Sand, I can't remember - eek!). It started as a fat quarter bundle of Innocent Crush I won, and I added some Loulouthi into the mix, and oh boy, do they play nicely together! The binding is from Loulouthi. The back is a voile from Innocent Crush, which worked out perfectly because I didn't have to piece the back. I think I might have to use a voile backing on all my quilts from now on!
Not only was the wide backing convenient, but the voile is oh so soft and preserved even more by tying the quilt. I've never tied a quilt before, and I was happy to learn a new method and love the results. I used a variegated Pearl Cotton (4120) to tie in the center of each cross.
(excuse that little binding thread there)
Another new-to-me aspect of this quilt was the batting - a soy blend which is anti-bacterial and very soft. I haven't washed my finished quilt yet, so I can't say how it shrinks, but I like the feel so far.
(it's really nice to have my quilt-holding husband back)
