Hey there friends! I hope you all had a great Christmas! Ours was fantastic, filled with lots of family time, but these last couple of quiet days at home have been just as precious. Yesterday, while new Lego sets were being meticulously built by my hubby and wild thing, I took the opportunity to finish up my latest quilt.
I really love the way this quilt turned out, and I wish I had a lovely place to take photos of it that would show off the fresh colors. Unfortunately, there isn't a bit of green to be found anywhere. Everything is brown, bare, and cold, though not cold enough for snow, which would also make for pretty pictures.
I had plenty of fabric left over, so I decided to make giant vertical bricks on the back of the quilt that kind of echo the design on the front. I was careful to make sure that the directional prints were facing the right way when I put the back together, but as you can see, not so much when I took the photo. It is upside down, ha!
If I have enough fabric, and it doesn't compete too much with the quilt, I always love to make a scrappy binding. With the white sashing, I think it looks perfect!
When I first sketched out this quilt design, I was inspired by stained glass. Since chapels are smaller and less formal than large sanctuaries, their stained glass is often more simplistic in its design, though no less beautiful. I am planning to get the pattern for this one written before I go back to school next week!
