My Half Rectangle Quilt is finished. I am so very pleased with this quilt, and it has reaffirmed my love for simple traditional quilt blocks, solid fabrics and grid quilting. I don't work with solid fabrics often enough!
|All solid fabrics are Robert Kaufman Kona Cottons|
background fabric is Kona Cotton in Ash
The solid fabrics combined with the grid quilting has given this traditional quilt a modern look and a texture you just want to run your hand over. The intersecting quilting lines are spaced one inch apart and rather than mark lines on the quilt I prefer to use a quilting guide attached to the walking foot to trace seam lines and stitching lines. It works a treat.
For the back of the quilt I have used a large scale print from the Glimma Collection by Lotta Jansdotter which nicely compliments the solid grey background fabric (Kona Cotton in Ash) and also adds a contrast in pattern.
For binding fabric I have used Sunprint (Text) by Allison Glass, but rather than cut the binding strips from selvage to selvage I have instead cut strips from the length of the fabric thereby changing the direction of the text.
This quilt is for sale. I have listed
