Yours Truly by Kim Kight for Cotton + Steel is due is stores in January and I was grateful to snap up a fat quarter bundle (indirectly) from Sample Spree at Quilt Market. Kim and Alexia Marcelle Abegg's fabric collections for C + S have so far been the collections that I have been drawn to the most. Their designs often include prints that are smaller in scale and in a (softer and lighter) color palette that is more suited to my style and preference for fabric. And I love Yours Truly!
Inspired by vintage love-themed fabrics and garments the Yours Truly collection features strawberries, raccoon-like critters, tiny scattered hearts and ribbons, a small scale floral design, and a grid print. The strawberries though ... are the very best! The color palette is warm and includes both saturated colors as well as as several lighter (and brighter) colors including a soft grey, and neon pink.
I was so pleased with my purchase that I cut into the bundle almost immediately - I didn't even take photos of the fabric bundle for a future Sunday Stash blog post! In addition to using almost all of the prints that are part of the Yours Truly collection I have added several more fabrics from previous C + S collections including a red gingham fabric (Checkers), and a floral pink fabric from the Lucky Strike collection also by Kim Kight.
The quilt design is a simple and traditional Flying Geese quilt (each Flying Geese unit measures 3 inches x 5 1/2 inches including seam allowances). I really wanted to highlight the prints by way of contrasting the designs with a solid background fabric and so for the "wings" of the Flying Geese units I have used a number of Robert Kaufman Kona Cottons and Essex Yarn Dyed linen in Flax, as well as Oakshott shot cottons from the Scandinavia collection.

45 inches x 55 inches.
I am really pleased with this quilt top! The colors play so well together and I can't wait to add texture and additional visual interest that comes with quilting, especially when quilting solid fabrics.
As always, thank you for stopping by!
