At long last

I still have *another* quilt to show with scraps from this beauty but it is so similar to the last quilt I posted. Plus I thought I'd give the HST quilts a break this week. I finished this last week for a friend's half birthday. (I crapped out on her real 30th birthday so this was a big surprise!) We're both crazy for chevrons so I knew the moment that I saw this that it had to be for her.

Solids are all Kona - butter, banana, violet, thistle, magenta and purple. Pattern is Tula Pink's Field Study. I made the medium throw size so this is 72" square. Tula made the model quilt out of prints and as much as I'm crazy obsessed with her fabric - and they could do a hoarder's episode with my collection of her fabric - I thought this was so much more striking in solids. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way this quilt turned out. Wasn't so sure half way through but when I got the top all stitched together - Holy. Moly. Love. This was another that was hard to let go but I knew that it was going to loving arms and that I'd be able to visit with it often.

The back is Lotta Jansdotter's Florine in Brass Mesh,with a stripe of the purple solids. It was so big that I was going to have to piece and I hate the thought of trying to match up the print. I also used the same fabric for the binding.

And Stella says that fabric is tasty, don't you know. . .

Linking up to Sew Modern Monday.



  1. Wow. This turned out great. I do love the look in solids.

  2. This is so lovely in the solids and I love the print on the back!

  3. This is really cute! Being from Louisiana, I can think of many LSU fans who would be partial to your color choices :-)
