|Pickle Dish Variation Quilt|
A final blog post today of the Pickle Dish Variation Quilt and what follows is photos of the finished quilt. This quilt is one of my favorite projects this year for not only is this a unique design but also a great stash and scrap buster project. This project completely satisfies my own sewing brief for the use of simple traditional patchwork blocks made with colorful and modern fabrics.
QUICK QUILT STATS
72 Drunkard's Path blocks
72 Quarter Star Blocks
All blocks measure 6.5 inches x 6.5 inches.
100+ different printed fabrics have been used to make this quilt.
Quilt measures 72 inches x 72 inches
For the back of the quilt I have used my current favorite backing fabric ~ Newsprint from the Paint Collection by Carrie Bloomston; this was the only backing fabric that I had on hand with sufficient yardage ~ for this is the biggest quilt that I have made this year (other than the Oakshott Kaleidoscope Quilt) and also quilted myself. The quilt is quilted with an all over 1 1/2 inch grid of intersecting edge to edge lines - which includes ditch stitching seam lines as well as using a quilting guide (attached to the walking foot) to evenly space the lines.
And no surprises ... I have matched the backing fabric with my favorite binding fabric ~ black and white stripe by Timeless Treasures.
This quilt was listed for sale in my Etsy Store and has sold already.
