A Finish: Antique Shop Floor

Sometimes I can be forgetful. In my hurry to get my quilt finished and in my suitcase when we flew back to the UK at the start of June, I neglected to photograph it! It’s going to be at least a year before I get it back because I don’t have another flight planned just yet, so I’m borrowing this photo from Popular Patchwork (I hope it will be OK) as it will be a pattern in their September issue out later this month… Go get it!

I’ve not got any projects planned after this, which is a bit worrying as I rely on this income to pay my student loan so I don’t have to send myself money to my UK bank account from here in Canada. I’m thinking about pitching to some US magazines too, maybe with my Bear in the Log Cabin quilt. Do you think Quilty would be a good fit? It’s been about 3 years since I sent them anything!

Size – 51″ square
Number of blocks – 16
Time to make – About 12 hours
Fabric – A crossweave by Another Point of View, a green print that I can’t remember the name of, plus a Kona purple and white. The sashing is more of the crossweave and the cornerstones are a scrap of a dark green Kona. The back is a Lonnie Rossi simple beige and white print with a touch of gold in it.
Binding Fabric – More Kona purple (eggplant?)
Threads – Quilted with Isacord in red and purple, pieced with Wonderfil Konfetti.
Batting – 80/20 Hobbs
Quilting- Grid – Red straight lines in one direction and purple in the other, spaced about 1 1/2″ apart to mimic the crossweave.
