This quilt was started about 2 years ago when I bought a scrap pack of Cherrywood hand dyed fabrics. The blocks are entirely from Cherrywood scrap packs plus that cute print with the words on it, which is a Robert Kaufman fabric.
The dark sashing is made from black plus little pieces of the darkest almost-black solids I could find. All are Cotton Couture from Michael Miller.
I quilted this on my home machine, using randomly-spaced, gently curving, lines from edge to edge. I used Superior Bottom Line in the bobbin, which I always do. Top thread is a medium grey light weight polyester, Mettler Metrosene.
This is going to the Smoky Mountain Quilters show in September. This year the show is scheduled in conjunction with Western Carolina University’s Mountain Heritage Day, which I think is a great idea. Of course I’ll have pictures from that show when it happens.
Linking to Aunt Marti’s UFO Challenge. I did get one finished this month!
I love that dark sashing and how you made it out of tiny pieces! It is so subtle but makes the viewer look closer, and it gives a rich layer of visual interest. I think it shows great dedication to the art form!
Thank you! Like everything else, I saw somebody else do it first 😊
Well, I may borrow that idea from you one day, and even if I don’t, your work makes me think more about my own and how to make every element more interesting! 🙂
Yes, Gwen is right. The sashing is spectacular and really sets the whole thing a step above.
Thank you ☺️. It gives me lots of other ideas, too.
I love this one! Very nice!
Love the name and the quilt.
Gorgeous! I love this quilt!
Thank you! It’s my current favorite.
Great idea and attention to detail! Thanks for sharing!
Hi Andrea! We’re back home now so I’ll check our schedule 😃
Great quilt! I also love the way you’ve done the sashing with little bits of muted colour – it really blends in well.
Thanks! This would be a good one to label with a ribbon I have saying “This took forever!”
That’s a beauty! Awesome!
The blocks remind me of sunrises! Such a great quilt. The colors pop. 🙂
Ooh, I like the sunrise idea! Thanks for visiting 🙂
I love it! I’ve often eyed the Cherrywood fabrics, but managed to resist — until now! Thanks for the inspiration!
Be careful–if you walk by a booth at a show, those scrap bags and gorgeous fabrics have a magnetic effect, luring you in! And I’ve gotten great customer service from these ladies, as well.
Beautiful! I always love Robert Kaufman fabric!
Thanks for visiting 🙃
