I am pleased with the progress of the custom quilt that I have been working on - I think the color play is working out well. Contrasting printed fabrics with a solid linen blend fabric is always a really effective mix.
This quilt has become a collection of many of my favorite fabrics and some of the squares are the very last piece salvaged from the scrap bin.
I particularly love the bold large scale blue print in this image as it adds so much interest to the quilt top. This loose weave linen/cotton blend fabric is from the 2009 collection of nani IRO by by Naomi Ito for Kokka of Japan. (purchased from Mountain of the Dragon on Etsy).
The plan for today involves making the backing and perhaps even basting this quilt. It does however promise to be a fine Autumn day today (welcome Autumn!) and a walk with the dog and a coffee stop on the way is much more likely.
