Quilted: by me with Aurifil 50 wt in white
I made this quilt with the help of my awesome bee mates at That Stash Bee. My month was May and I asked for Depression Blocks made with black, grey and white prints. I asked them to think of Black and White TV. And they did! I was quite happy to open up all the soft and squishy packages of quilt blocks over several weeks. Then I had to get busy and make some blocks myself to make the quilt big enough.
I quilted three rows of straight line stitching on each side of the blocks. I used Aurifil 50 wt in white of course! It gives a really nice texture and there is a nice break in the quilting at the centre of each block. I adore straight line quilting! I love the scrappiness of the blocks and oh, did you notice how one little red triangle snuck into the quilt? I couldn't resist.
I backed the quilt in the fabulous number print from Ikea with a strip of grey solids and bound the whole thing in Kona Charcoal which is such a fabulous deep grey. All finished. Linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish it up Friday.
