I have had these treasured fabrics in my stash and wanted to see them out in the world as quilts so I was busy sewing last week.
This first quilt is made with Alison Glass Chroma batiks. I cut my fat quarters into 10 x 10 inch squares and sewed them together into a patchwork quilt top.
I quilted it simply with horizontal lines in grey thread. I had no idea I would put the backing on this quilt when I bought it but it is really the perfect backing for this quilt. The words are all words to describe colours or descriptive colour names. This is a wideback from Windham Fabrics.
I bound the quilt with black kona machine sewn to the front and the back with black thread.
I also made a cute baby quilt using white Kona, 2 1/2 inch strips of Kona in rainbow colours and fussy cuts of treasured Heather Ross prints.
I quilted the white with wavy lines in white thread and the rainbow colours are quilted in wavy lines with coordinating thread colours. I quilted around the princess and the pea and around the frog pond in the little framed out prints at the top and bottom of the quilt. The binding is purple ombre fabric.
It’s tricky to use the princess and the pea print in quilts because it doesn’t really cut out to a normal block measurement. I framed it in pink and set it on it’s own.
I did the same with the print of the adorable frogs at the swimming hole.
Here you can see the different thread colours in the rainbow strips.
I backed it with cute Cotton + Steel Magic Forest squirrels. This quilt was fun to make!
