This quilt is being shipped to my cousin today. I'm hoping it will bring him some comfort through cancer treatments. Cancer sucks.
So, back in February, I went fabric shopping with a friend. We bought the same focus fabric- mine in blue, hers in red. I knew it would be perfect with the stacked squares pattern from the Moda Bake Shop. I didn't have pre-cuts, but even with extra cutting, the top came together really quickly. Like two days. I know I get a little obsessive when I'm piecing. It's my happy place!
The quilting had to wait until after the wedding and baby quilts were done. The free motion quilting design compliments the pattern perfectly.
The back is mostly the focus fabric: iHaus from Cloud 9 Fabrics. The solid blue is Kona Pacific, the dark gray is Kona Charcoal, the taupe is not Kona. The other prints are an assortment of fat quarters from stash. There are a couple of prints with flowers, but I hope it's not too girly.
Bound in charcoal. Labelled, washed, and ready to go. Yeah, this photo was taken before washing. It's crinkly and cozy now.
