Headliner Text Quilt

Read all about it : )

I have started the new week with my foot to the pedal!  My traditional log cabin quilt featuring numerous text prints is now finished.  Although my quilts are rarely finished with a border, this quilt looked unfinished and plain without it. Adding a border of half square triangles has given this quilt a little zing and movement.  


Details of some of the fabrics used can be found in this blog post:


My love for popular text fabrics continues, and I hope to add a wider variety of text/letters/numbers to my  fabric stash as they become available.  I enjoy reading all of the little messages, quirky stories and headlines that  cover this quilt.  The back of the quilt also (in part) features a text print - Memoir in White from Madrona Road by Violet Craft.


Quilted in simple straight lines -   vertical, horizontal, as well as diagonal - and bound with a black/white stripe fabric (no surprises).   The dark(er) black and white border and binding both complement and frame this quilt; adding another color at this finishing stage wasn't a workable option.  


As usual, I have listed this quilt in my Etsy Store.  
You can find the listing here :  Modern Patchwork Quilt. 

Thank you for stopping by,
Rita

  3. Your quilt is beautiful! I also love the text prints, but I haven't even bought any yet! (Shame on me. They'll be gone by the time I get around to it!)

  4. The border is just right! I love how the spiky triangles add movement to the lovely, texty squares. A great quilt!

  5. This quilt is so neat- for being still very much your style but at the same time different- for the traditional blocks and border, especially in light of the previous not-even-bound baby quilts. Great fabric choices as usual!

  8. that's lovely. How on earth do you get the backs so smooth and wrinkle free, I'm having a nightmare with mine and have had to unpick the quilting more times than I care to mention and rebasted it several times!
