I was waiting for the sun to make an appearance so I could take some pictures of this quilt, but that doesn't seem to be happening anytime soon, so dreary pictures it is! Luckily, the quilt itself is pretty sunny.
This quilt is for a baby who will be making his way into the world soon. I decided to put my 4x5 bee blocks to use, so the top came together really quickly. I just added some sashing (Kona Ash).
For the quilting, I looked again to Angela Walters' book for inspiration. This is the woodgrain pattern. This one was tricky for me, and my results are a bit, shall we say, rustic. But once the quilt was washed and dried it just gives it a lot of texture.
I love all of these blocks! The HOME one is definitely a favorite.
I was kind of stuck on the binding but ended up going with Kona Coal.
I put this together using materials I had on hand, which always makes me feel so thrifty!
I had the perfect backing fabrics in my stash--Taza by Dena Designs.
