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.
