I made this quilt from my most favorite fabric line ever. It’s called Circa 1934 by Cosmo Cricket for Moda. I used Kona Sable for the sashing which I think gives it a warmer feel. I quilted this one on my friend’s long-arm, too. Just a large meander on this one.
This isn’t a great picture, I had to take this one inside too because of all the pollen. PS-that’s my cat Fisher sticking his big head in the picture at the bottom. With 2 cats and 2 dogs, pictures taken indoors will almost always have a fur kid in them! I really loved the print that I used on the back of this one.
It’s a great graphic print and unfortunately, I used every scrap I had for the back. You can see that I still had to piece together the corner using some of my other scraps.
This little typewriter is great. I wish I had some more of this print! I really like this quilt, but I’m not thrilled with the pattern I chose to use. I wanted to showcase the great prints in this line with the big hexagon pieces. I didn’t want to have to sew Y-seams and this pattern eliminated that. However, it put a seam right in the middle of the hexagon. If it was a different print, it may not be as noticeable, but it really shows up in the prints with text. I’m hoping that when I wash it, the crinkles will kind of blend it in a bit.
I also made a bag using this fabric line that you can see here. I’ve used it so much that I’ve already had to reinforce the straps on it. I will be so sad when it wears out and I can’t use it anymore.
Tomorrow I’m going to a quilt retreat hosted by the Atlanta Modern Quilt Guild. I am all packed and ready to go! I am so excited. I am taking 5 projects with me to work on. We’ll see how much I get finished tomorrow!
