With the pedal to the metal I have finished the Poseidon Quilt.
A really simple layout using every single one of the 21 colors in the Kona Cotton Poseidon Fat Quarter bundle, plus I have added the colorway Ash, and have used Snow for sashing. In the bottom left hand corner is the only printed fabric used in this quilt - a floral print by Kaffe Fassett - Line Dance in White.
I have quilted it with straight lines both vertically and horizontally, although more of some in one direction than the other. The quilting has added so much character and warmth to the quilt which, although visually the quilt top itself was impressive, it lacked the "wrap up and snuggle now" factor.
For binding fabric I have chosen to use a printed fabric, this being a much loved (and often used) Japanese import, Kei Honeycomb in reverse, a grey dot on a white background.
And the quilt back: Kona Cotton Ash and some leftover Kona Poseidon pieces. I do love the look of all of those quilting lines intersecting, creating a unique quilt in itself.
This was a really simple project, and can be pieced quickly using simple chain piecing techniques. The one thing to be mindful of when sewing this quilt top is to be very accurate when cutting your squares and sashing. If your squares vary in size, your rows just won't line up and as this is such a visually graphic quilt, the unmatched sashing lines are much more obvious than if you are using a busy printed fabric to distract the eye.
I have updated my Etsy Store.
