I'm not sure how I didn't buy the Ella Quilt pattern when it first came out because I love the design! And of course I can't remember when I saw this pattern again or what prompted me to buy it this time around, but when I was making my sewing plans for the first quarter of 2021, it needed to be part of those plans.
The pattern requires a background fabric (I used Kona Ash) and 8 fat quarters. I really like that as far as colours and prints, anything goes really for this pattern. I had a lot of fun choosing the fat quarters I used for this quilt. Most of them unfortunately didn't have the fabric designer on the selvage so I can't list all of them, but they had all been part of my stash for a while.
The back is another vintage sheet my husband found a while ago. It is incredibly soft and snuggly - the perfect quilt back.
And I made the binding with leftovers from the fat quarters and a longer piece I had which remained from the Oh Happy Day! quilt I finished back in December.
I used Aurifil #2600 (Dove) in 50 wt to quilt my favourite wavy vertical lines. I decided to quilt them a little more densely that is usual for my quilts. I like that some of the lines intersect, creating an almost "wood"-like pattern.
