I was supposed to be tidying the growing fabric mountain that was - and still is - threatening to avalanche, but instead was distracted by a number of fabrics that I'd set aside whilst making a previous quilt; a bundle of fabrics in the black/white, blue/green, red and yellow color palette.
Out came the rotary cutter and soon I was editing my fabric choices, sewing, basting and quilting, and finally binding. The design is again a simple 'just squares' patchwork featuring the fabrics and the colors rather than an intricate pattern. A timeless classic and still a favorite way to piece.
I have quilted this quilt with a 1 inch grid of lines, using a quilting guide attached to my walking foot rather than marking lines on the quilt. I like to secure the quilting guide firmly in place with a little masking tape so that it cannot wriggle about, and my quilting lines stay straight.
