Modern HST sampler
i am in LOVE with this quilt!! last year i participated in the Modern HST Sampler hosted by Blossom Heart Quilts. plus this brings my WiP's down to just 2!!
for this quilt i used my Cotton + Steel stash with Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Black for the background. the final effect with the bright Cotton + Steel fabrics is perfect, but working with the linen did present some challenges. (the linen liked to stretch) but it was a good challenge to work through.
i did not feel like adding sashing to this quilt, but i did want to make it a little bigger. so i added the scrappy 4-patch border, made with the scraps from the blocks. i think it helps to bring everything together. i decided to keep the quilting fairly simple. just a serpentine stitch that i have on my machine. and after washing the texture is just perfect. just the right amount of crinkle!
for the backing i used a big print from the Black and White collection that i just didn't want to cut up.
i'm so happy that i participated in the QAL, this quilt is defiantly one of my favorites i've made.
