I finished this fun quilt up recently with a bunch of straight line quilting and a fun tiger cat backing. I would have shown it sooner, but have been sort of waiting on a snowstorm (no luck, just ice and really cold temps instead…). I find it’s hard to photograph a quilt in Vermont during the winter – without a fresh layer of snow, things are pretty bleak.
This weekend I convinced my sister and brother-in-law to drive me around the more rural areas of Vermont looking for decent photo spots (a big thanks, W & E!). My sister, who wasn’t really dressed for the task, was nonetheless up for climbing through snowbanks to hold up the quilt, so now I can finally show this one off!
I quilted it with straight lines in both directions with random spacing between the lines. I love the look, though it does take some time to complete!
Keeping with the Cotton + Steel theme, I opted for this great red basic, which is part of Alexia’s new Mesa line. I don’t think I’ve ever used red for a binding, but I love the pop of color, and especially how it looks with those yellow cats.
