I gave this quilt to my sister for Christmas, and can finally share it here on my blog. After making this quilt (and this one), I can finally say I LOVE solids. Not that I didn't like them before, but when shopping for fabric, I will generally always reach for prints over solids.
But I think I might be changing my mind...Bold geometrics designs are everywhere right now, and solids sure do make a stronger statement than prints.
Several months ago, I took of screenshot of this instagram and I knew I had to make that rug into a quilt. I love how it turned out...
I used this gold stripe again. It's still the perfect mustardy yellow.
Feathers on the backing.
I quilted in the ditch vertically and horizontally, with both white and black thread. There was no way to keep the quilting thread completely hidden, but switching threads turned out to be pretty great.
