I finished the quilt for the family gift exchange on my dad's side of the family.
the starting point:
plus the thumbprint cats fabric from Timeless Treasures. I pulled jade, coral, mustard, putty, and dark brown from the fabrics as the front color scheme.
I sketched a geometric pattern that I decided was drab only after I cut the squares for the blocks. so I redirected to a random pattern on an alternating square grid. because this is the year of the graph paper quilt.
the back is in stripes
I used osnaburg for the main background. I was taken with its linen-like look and thought it would be less fraytastic than linen, since it is a cotton woven. I don't think I would use it in a quilt again. the texture is not really what I hoped.
quilted in lines and bound in a solid mustard fabric.
