Trailmarker quilt

I wanted to show you this quilt today, but then totally forgot to write the post last night (I blame the early, early wakings (thanks to Max) for my forgetfulness!). So this post will probably be short. Maybe more photos and fewer words…

This quilt contains lots of my favorite fabrics, going for a softer, more neutral look. It’s paired with nearly every neutral I had in my stash – mixing up lots of Kona, Essex and Free Spirit solids.

I bound it with an aqua polka dot print I’ve had in my stash forever.

It’s quilted with straight lines of random widths. It does take quite a bit of time to quilt, but I think it’s well worth it.

And here’s the back! I’m really quite taken with it — it’s just a mix of all the leftover neutral solids along with just a few bits of color.

 

My scrappy triangle tutorial can be found here. These are obviously the not-so-scrappy variety, and for this quilt I made them smaller - with a finished block size of 4 1/2 x 7 1/2.
