One of my goals this year is to use more solids. I thought this would be the perfect pattern since it's on the traditional side, and using solids only would make it a bit more modern.
I tried, I really did, but couldn't go all solid. Instead I chose a solid and simple geometric print for each of the blocks. I couldn't be more pleased with the result.
I loved searching for two fabrics from my stash to make the blocks and couldn't wait to see how each would turn out. This made the block piecing go really quick!
I decided on simple, modern straight line quilting, spacing the lines 3/4" apart.
The quilt finishes at 74" square and it may be one of my favorites...
With the front being fairly simple, I decided to put a fun print on the back with a solid binding.
This is Sarah Watts' print from her Sleep Tight collection for Cotton and Steel. Very cute, isn't it?
Wondering if this will be my last Swoon quilt???
