From this stack of solid cotton fabric
To these 3″, 4″ and 5″ strips
To this quilt top.
I saw this design/kit in the new Keepsake Quilting catalog and realized that I already had lots of solid cotton fabrics that I could use. I recreated the pattern and made the blocks a tad smaller (11.5″ finished) and used brighter fabrics. The top will measure about 57″ x 57″ when I finish with the backing, binding and quilting. I have lots of left over strips that I may randomly piece together to make the backing.
My initial thought is to quilt this with floss in a Sashiko style (straight line) hand stitch. How would you quilt it?
Make it a great day and keep it simple!
This is beautiful. Yes I agree with doing sashiko quilting on that and some embroidery. What a wonderful piece of quilting.
