53.5" x 51.5"
Kaffe Fassett shot cottons by Westminster Fabrics. Yardage plus pieces from the Shot Cotton Fat Quarter bundle. All fabric (and thread) purchased from Treelotta. (and here)
100% cotton Warm and Natural batting
Aurifil 100% Mako cotton thread, 50 weight (#2460) for both piecing and quilting
Bernina modified stitch for the overall quilting
Original design (inspired by Jacquie Gering's improv piecing class, November 2013)
The fabric was so gorgeous to work with I used up all my scraps adding left over little bits in random places
|Close-up, quilt front|
|Quilt front with tiny pops of color sneaking off the edge|
I even used up tiny scraps in the binding
The block design at the quilt bottom is from the quilt Jacquie gave me to finish for her.
I added the additional stripes to emphasize the overall design and make the block really standout on the otherwise solid background.
Thank you Jacquie for being so inspiring!
|Quilt in place. It was made for our living room.|
It's just the right size to throw on your lap, grab a good book and get reading!
Although hard to tell, the dominant shot cotton color is very close in color to my couch
