Neutral Study Quilt II ~ A Custom Quilt

A picture post ~ with all of the details just in case you fancy making your own Neutral Study Quilt.

The finished size of this quilt is 64.5 inches x 80.5 inches and consists of 80 Log Cabin Style blocks made using this RPQ tutorial:  Log Cabin Block Tutorial.   You can easily custom size your quilt by adding more or less rows/columns of blocks.  


Center squares solid fabricsPure Elements collection by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics :: Emerald, Tile Blue, and Lemonade, as well as Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton :: Corn Yellow, Amber, and Red.


Solid Neutral Fabrics include:

Feature fabrics:  include text fabrics (see also Sunday Stash #148), hand screen printed Maze and Vale designs (see also Sunday stash #130), Classic Moda - Chicken Wire, Black/White stripe, and three prints from Bella by Lotta Jansdotter collection.


Although it has been an enormous amount of work to make this custom quilt, it has also been a wonderful opportunity (and a pleasure) to work with a customer who allowed (and trusted) me to create instinctively and without constraint.
 
This quilt is already winging its way to Ireland  ...  I can't begin to tell you what it feels like to have my quilts loved in places so far away!

Thank you for stopping by,
Rita
