This summer I didn’t do much piecing. I don’t know if I just preferred being outdoors while the weather was nice, or if I was somewhat burned out on quilting. But now that the gardening/camping season is over, I’ve been piecing up a storm! Here’s one quilt I finished recently:
The pattern is called the ‘Cut Up’ quilt by Pieced Tree Designs. The fabric is a layer cake from Moda called Little Gatherings. I really fell in love with these fabrics when I saw them. Originally I only ordered the layer cakes, but once I worked with them I had to order charm packs and jelly rolls as well! I wanted to keep a masculine feeling to this quilt, so I used a panto that looks like woodgrain. The panto is called Mahogany, and in it’s original form all of the lines flow horizontally. But I modified it so every other block is vertical. I’m really happy with how it turned out, what do you think?
I started another quilt using a jelly roll in these fabrics, and I’m also working on a Christmas quilt. I’ll try and show you more tomorrow. What have you been working on?
