TUXEDO QUILT-PERSONAL POST
For posterity and to keep track of all of my “makes”; here is a photo (taken by the recipients) of a quilt I gifted for a lovely couple that got married last week. I call it “Tuxedo”. In part because of the event it was made for, but also, because the striped sashing reminds me of a tuxedo… don’t know why.
It is a Queen-sized quilt, made using a Zen Chic layer cake. I saw a pattern (somewhere in the blogoshpere) and decided I was going to try to figure out the math for it. It seemed simple enough so I didn’t bother to buy the pattern. I know, shame on me! I usually buy patterns from the designers to support them but I just caught a quick look of the original and couldn’t find it when I logged on again. (if anyone knows who designed this… I’d be happy to give kudos)
I don’t have a picture of the back but, I pieced large white and black lengths of fabric together and added a strip of extra sashing to add a bit of zing. I used Hobbs 80/20 batting and Aurifil 2600 (light grey) for the quiling. I FMQ triangular “stipples” (random triangles) in the squares and lines with raindrops in each alternate square.
The couple seems to like it and it’s one more quilt made using my stash.
Till next time…
