I finished this quilt several months ago, and am just getting around to blogging about it.
(sorry this is slightly ever so out of focus)
you can learn about the making of this quilt here . It's the longer, more tedious way to make a plus quilt, "rectangle in the middle", I think I'll stick to the "5 square" version of the plus quilt.
the recent retreat I attended was the perfect back drop for a photo shoot.
65 x 81 (washed)
batting - 80/20% comfort blend by winline
fabric - feature fabric is "bug jars" from Michael Miller, Hawthorne fabrics (bikes and woodpecker on birch), wimpy kid by Robert Kaufman, and other aquas, greens, grays. Match stick and pencils by cotton and steel. I even see a bit of Sarah Jane (making paper airplanes) and a few sweetwater fabrics.
quilting - meandering squares
pattern - squares are 4 inches, 1 rectangle and 2 squares = 1 plus
pattern from for the love of George blog
quilted pillowsham - 19 x 27
inspired by - quiltstory on IG (Meg: @quiltstorymeg)
I was trying to find the name of the skeleton fabric and look what I found:
quilted in meandering squares
quilted on the HQ sweet sixteen
I'm just now using my Ikea numbers for a large back, wish I'd bought more.
These pictures are all a bit out of focus, sorry. I think I need a new camera :(
