Sunburnt Quilts

A Woodland Quilt.

Posted on | October 15, 2017 | 8 Comments

Every now and then a particular fabric range catches your eye and becomes a must have. This quilt is a result of that must have.

It is small lap size at 41 inches square. I wanted to keep it simple so used the grey fabric in the large 8 1/2 inch blocks and the border.

I also wanted to repeat a few patterns. The green square in the centre is repeated in the first border and then in the binding.

I wanted the white squares to sit in each corner.

The smaller squares were fussy cut to make sure there were plenty of animals to be seen.

The green fabric features feathers. And the animals are super cute.

I used another green fabric from the range for the backing.

This close up looks better.

I kept the quilting very low key and meandered all over. I wanted the fabric to feature on this one, not the quilting.

I find it tricky sometimes when it comes to planning the quilting because many see meandering as an easy way out. I don’t want every quilt to be done that way, but I do think there is a place for it in a quilt like this.

I found this design very easy to put together and plan to make a few more as donation quilts.. I only needed 70cm of the main fabric and was able to back it with only one length of fabric as it was less than the WOF. That’s a bonus.

Loving the sunshine here at the moment.

Have a great week.

Cheers, Karen
