Quilt measures 50 inches x 50 inches.
20 rows each of 20 squares.
100+ different quilting cottons including
numerous beautiful Liberty of London Tana Lawn prints.
The color palette of this quilt is not my usual palette, but I have grown very fond of these muted tones, and together with the pops of brighter colors - like the yellow prints - I don't think that this quilt is that much of a stretch in terms of my "normal". I love the finished quilt, even with all those purple fabrics!
I have quilted the quilt by ditch stitching all seam lines, thereby creating an all over 2.5 inch grid of intersecting lines as well as a single set of diagonal quilting lines (cross-hatching). Ditch stitching with a low loft batting is functional rather than decorative, allowing the fabrics to feature, whilst still giving the quilt a subtle texture.
For the back of the quilt I have used a single fabric - a small scale red floral print with white background - from The Simple Life collection by Tasha Noel. And for this quilt I felt it was necessary to deviate from my standard black/white stripe binding fabric, instead using a soft pink print ~ Squared Elements in Rosewater (Art Gallery Fabrics) to complement the overall tone of the quilt.
