Poseidon

After much consideration and indecision I have, this week, cut into my Kona Cotton Poseidon FQ bundle.


Some calculated strip piecing saw this quilt top come together really quickly.  Simple piecing for such an effective result.


My only solid fabric addition to the Poseidon FQ bundle is Kona Cotton in Ash, a favorite grey that I fits in well with the overall color palette.  For sashing I have used Kona Cotton in Snow.


Backing, basting .... and quilting.

  6. I have been thinking of using solids to make boy/man-kind quilts. There are limited range of fabric that are for them. Most likely I will follow you/

  42. It looks so much like City Green from City Quilts. Maybe a little too much so. hmmm.

  43. Do you find when making a quilt like this that it is tricky lining up the blocks when there is that long strip of sashing in between the rows? Any tips? I usually try to make sure it is all lined up and then pin like crazy. Wondering if you have a better way.

    ReplyDelete
  44. you are absolutely amazing ... your sense of colour and simplicity show exactly what it's all about. now how are you going to quilt it? something simple i bet.

    ReplyDelete

  47. Love the colors and the simplicity. It's pleasing to the eye. I'm curious to see what color thread you will use for quilting. Dark fabrics and white. What color works?

  48. Linda - To quilt this quilt I have used Gutermann 100% cotton thread #919, it is a light beige/cream thread that seems to take on the color of the fabric that it is quilted on, and therefore blends well. For the bobbin thread I have used a grey Gutermann thread (#681) which perfectly matches the Kona Cotton Ash used for the back of the quilt.

    Thanks,Rita
