It's been a foot on the pedal kind of week, with a flurry of fabric arrivals, cutting, sewing, basting, quilting and finally binding.
|Briar Rose Quilt - Work in Progress|
|Those strawberries are so darn cute!|
I was lucky enough to snap up a Fat Quarter bundle of Briar Rose by Heather Ross - an early release from Quilt Market and was so excited to get my hands on it that I cut into it the same day it arrived on my doorstep.
I have made a simple patchwork quilt using all of the prints from the Briar Rose Collection and have teamed them with a number of matching solid fabrics.
The solid fabrics that I have used are all Robert Kaufman Kona Cottons and include:
- Sour Apple
- School Bus
For the back of the quilt I have used a small blue and green dot on a white background (from The Simple Life by Tasha Noel) which complements the colors of the Briar Rose collection and I have quilted the quilt with an all over 1 inch grid. Although more heavily quilted than most of my previous quilt, the quilt feels light and drapes beautifully. The quilting texture simply demands to be touched.
For binding I have used an irregular soft pink/white stripe (Straws in Pink - Simpatico by Michelle Engel Benckso).
I have updated my Etsy Store. You can see the listing details for this quilt here: Modern Patchwork Quilt. There's going to be one lucky girl!
Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend. Ours is a long weekend!
Briar Rose by Heather Ross is expected to arrive in stores in July 2013.
