This bundle of fabric, as seen in Sunday Stash #90, was always destined to become a quilt, sooner rather than later.
I already had a mental picture of the quilt design/layout, and with a quick change of blade, the rotary cutter whizzed through the fabrics, cutting rectangles according to the original plan as well as setting aside an extra set of squares to be sewn together into a quick and simple quilt top at a later stage.
What happened next? I really wanted to see the effect of the layout of the extra squares of fabric that had been cut, and impatiently found myself arranging and rearranging the squares on my design floor, and then ..... went on to sew the complete quilt top.
The fabrics used for this quilt are all stripes ~ some new and from stash (all 100% cotton), others are reclaimed vintage bed linens (meticulously washed) which are either cotton or a polycotton blend. The recycled bed linens were all in very good condition and easy to work with.
At the last moment ~ which always seems to coincide with the wee hours of the morning ~ I decided to add some fun borders. The borders are easy piecing Half Square Triangles set off with some Robert Kaufman Kona - Ash.
I am really pleased with the colorful effect of the layout and cannot wait to start quilting this quilt top to add yet another dimension to this quilt.
