I didn't really have any kind of a plan when I started them. I made four wonky log cabins, and decided to try to make something out of them.
I made the binding out of stripey fabric because who doesn't love a stripey binding? Plus there was so much 'blank' space that I thought it'd be a nice frame.
I made the back out of the Kona cotton solids I'd used on the front. Now I totally want a colour block dress like that.
This one ended up measuring 40" by 51".
The second quilt was pieced together in the same fashion as the red, white and black quilt I made for my friend. Sort of improv with straight lines... a little bit of an oxymoron, no? Hehe.
The binding is Kona celery (I think? I really ought to write these things down...). I went with a solid since the front's a little busy. It ended up measuring 43" by 53".
I'm pretty in love with them both. I love how they're made of the same fabrics but look vastly different. And I like using purples, especially since it doesn't get much love. I have to say I used to be guilty of avoiding purple just because it made me think of Grimace heehee!
Both quilts are
currently available in the shop SOLD.
