Oh, have you seen this lovely pattern by KatieDid? She calls it her "go-to" quilt and it is such a joy to make. Quick and easy, this quilt comes together in a fraction of the time it would take to make a pieced top, but has such a lovely look and feel that you'll never miss the myriad of fabrics that a pieced top has.
In my efforts to use up my stash and not buy new fabric for each project, the front is a baby blue sateen and the back is Kona Stone. I know that Kona is the gold standard for solids, but frankly, I don't get it. Yes, the colors are beautiful and plentiful and yes, the quality is good and I've never had a bleeding problem, but I wish I liked the feel of it more. It always feels so rough compared to something like gorgeous Moda fabrics. I really like how the sateen worked up in this quilt - it's so soft to begin with and the puckering made it even more silky.
I quilted in three colors - navy blue, a mid-range blue, and a vibrant grass green. I did end up having to buy the binding fabric - nothing in my stash was quite right. Because I ended up rounding the corners, the binding was cut on the bias. I'm a big fan of rounded corners in general, though I don't typically round them on my quilts. That said, I felt like such a simple little quilt needed the visual interest of a non-traditional corner.
Stripey binding was inspired by Elisabeth at Oh, Fransson! Do you follow her? If not, you really should. She's so creative and I am always learning from her. She makes beautiful things and readily shares her knowledge of everything quilting.
