I have worked like a demon to finish a quilt in three days and I am so pleased with the result. These are not colours I usually work with; I think yellow can be tricky and yet I am in love with the yellows here and their interaction with the pink and green. I think there is a really vibrant look to this quilt.
Log cabin is a favourite quilt pattern of mine, but I especially like it when you are not too strict about the dark and light effect. I like to abandon the traditional to make the pattern more modern. I'm glad that I put the different cats from Hello Petal by Aneela Hoey in the centre of each block. I think it makes everything join together somehow.
This week I had a trip to Ikea and bought some fabric, Britten Nummer, which I have seen backing other quilts, but I am happy to join that bandwagon; it's modern and distinctive, as well as a really good price. I think handwritten text on fabric works really well on the back because the cats on the front also have their names handwritten. (I may have bought a few metres of this, so I have to use it up.)
I've loved working with these fabrics and am pleased with the overall result, but I am also happy to see this quilt go. It is going on my Etsy store and is available for sale here. Let's hope someone likes the colours and cats and makes a purchase.
Thank you for visiting.
