About a month ago, I'm quietly sitting with my morning coffee, going through my blog feed when I land on a new pattern release by Erica Jackman of Kitchen Table Quilting: the Kelly Quilt. The design and the fabrics Erica used for her sample were just so beautiful, I knew I had to have it.
Almost as soon as I downloaded the pattern, I started planning which fat quarters I would use and in which colour way. I thought maybe purples, then I looked through my stash for pinks or reds. In the end, I decided to go with blue and yellowish greens.
The solids are Kona Titanium and Kona White. The backing is a fun blue polka dot fabric I had left from another recent quilt finish.
The quilting is a square meander stitched with Aurifil #2600 (Dove) in 50 wt. The thread colour is very light and pretty much disappears against most of the fabrics in the quilt, leaving only the texture for the eye to see.
I love this little quilt and I'm super happy that it was another one made entirely from my stash. I haven't bought quilting cottons for months now, except for solids and backings. I'm running low on some colours such as pink and green, but some of the colours I don't use very often, such as yellow and orange are still pretty full.
- Pattern: Kelly Quilt by Kitchen Table Quilting

I'm going to be adding this little quilt to my pile of gifts (the pile is getting pretty big now).
What a wonderful finish! Would love to see how you organize your fabrics or where you sew.ReplyDelete
That's awesome that you have been able to sew from your stash so much recently. I tend to find it harder for background and backing yardage after a time, too. I really like the quilting texture, and Dove is a great thread choice when there are a lot of colors.ReplyDelete
