I have absolutely loved working with (what is for me) a limited color palette and I am quietly pleased with how it has turned out. This quilt has a classy feel about it but also a little rustic in a homely kind of way.
The "neutrals" in this instance include many shades of white, cream, beige and grey fabrics; all quality Robert Kaufman Kona Cottons as well as gorgeous Oakshott Cottons for texture and further variation in hue. The layout is a basic log cabin design - alternating light and dark fabric placement.
The quilting design is simple; straight lines - vertical, horizontal as well as diagonal - creating an intersecting grid of lines which doesn't overwhelm the quilt but still adds interest.
For binding I have used a black and white stripe fabric, although it is not my standard "go to" binding fabric. This stripe fabric is Lines White from the Word Play collection by Michele D'Amore (Benartex), a narrow and irregular black stripe on a white background that complements the hushed tone of this quilt.
If I had to choose a favorite part of this quilt it is quite possibly the section of solid red binding in the bottom right hand corner. And by chance the placement of this section of bright color is perfectly balanced.
As usual I have updated my Etsy Store. You can find the listing here: Modern yet Colorful Patchwork Quilt.
