If this quilt looks familiar, it may be because it’s a variation of the Cotton + Steel quilt I showed last week. While trying to come up with a design idea for Sarah Watts’ upcoming Tokyo Trainride line, I kept wanting to see the blocks set on point.


It didn’t end up working out for that particular design, but I couldn’t get it out of my head, so once those quilts were done, I took the opportunity to make a variation on point with the leftover fabrics.


I used a large square of each of Sarah’s prints for the center, and surrounded each with coordinating Cotton + Steel basics.


I made a crazy pieced backing with the leftover pieces


along with a bit of the selvage, which I think is fun to include when I’ve made a quilt out of one line.


I quilted it with largish loops – it’s a quilting design I’ve always liked the looks of but had never tried. Turns out it’s a fun one! I marked horizontal lines to keep the loop height about even.


I think I may have to make this one again featuring another fun fabric line!
