Finally – a new finish. Hooray! This quilt is mostly made from the latest Sweetwater collection for Moda fabrics, called Reunion. I love the colors and prints in this one. I used my Brickyard pattern for this quilt. I’ve been wanting to try that design again (esp since I don’t have the first quilt), but do it in a completely different color scheme.
I used a Layer Cake (stack of pre-cut 10″ squares) for the bricks, which gave me lots of prints and colors to play with. The sashing is Kona charcoal. I did not do the quilting – it was done by Becky Heslop (hi Becky!). I gave her free-reign to do what she wanted, and love the outcome.
I especially love the simple way she quilted the chevron fabric on the borders – totally changes the look of the fabric. The binding is a red dot leftover from Freebird. I’m trying to only use the fabric I’ve already got on hand – even if it’s something I was saving for another project. (gasp!) Because who knows if that project is ever really going to happen. It’s time to use that stash.
I think that I love the back equally much. That little pennant print is charming. I also used the left over 10″ squares from the layer cake to piece the back, but I needed more fabric to supplement so I used some solid red. In looking for a few more blocks to add, I pulled this plaid from Denyse Schmidt’s latest collection, Aunt Edna at JoAnn’s. It was perfect! It was so perfect – I wished I’d used it in the front too.
