intersections quilt


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!



Tiger cats!


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.


Want to make one? My tutorial for this quilt block can be found here!

Cotton + Steel fabrics can be found many places, and their newest lines are popping up everywhere! Be sure to check my sidebar for a listing of my favorite shops!
