This quilt was inspired by brick work on a building in Nashville, Tennessee.
I made improv log cabin blocks from strips of various denim and indigo-colored fabrics, cutting free-hand, and set them on point. The background fabric is an unbleached linen from Moda.
I threw in some small bits of Kona Lime just for fun. I included a batik fabric as well, thinking it would be fun to sneak some into Quiltcon. Unfortunately, though, this quilt was not selected for Quiltcon.
With so much negative space, I wanted to show off the quilting. I used wool batting, which really pleased me in combination with the unbleached linen. Here's a shot I took before adding the binding:
And more details of the quilting:
Finally, here is a shot of the back:
I'm a little disappointed not to have a quilt in this upcoming Quiltcon, especially since it is the first chance I'll have to attend the show in person. But I do hope to enter this quilt in other shows.
I'll be linking up with crazy mom quilts for Finish It Up Friday.
