quilt on a quilt | a quilt looking for a good home

Edit: I donated this quilt in April 2018 to a raffle for a little girl who is battling cancer. 

This quilt is the product of a challenge hosted by the Modern Quilt Guild (I'm a member of the RI chapter) and sponsored by Michael Miller Fabrics. The fabric line is Petal Pinwheels which is a really cute and fun line. I loved tile pile, the print that looks like orange peels, and I used a bunch of Kona silver and added bright coral binding with some scraps, too. Scrappy bindings are my favorite. Actually, stripey bindings might be my real favorite. Anyway, my guild set one guideline for the fabric challenge - to use negative space in your work. I had never really used much negative space in a quilt before, but I knew I wanted to design something with some patchwork floating in a sea of open space. I drew inspiration from Denyse Schmidt's Big Charming quilt to create this piece and I ended up loving the result. Ezra asked why there's a quilt on a quilt :) Perfect for a sweet babe or toddler, it's listed in the shop and ready for snuggling! 

Thanks so much for joining me this week as I relaunched the tiny hummingbird shop! I have three more quilts that will all be listed next week as well as a bunch that have already been given to their owners, many of them Finn's friends :) Have a great weekend!

  1. Very astute on Ez's part! He's going to be a quilter some day, and put us all to shame! :-) haha.
