So I did it. I cut into the tiny pieces of fabric from my trip to Japan in 2007 (before I was really into sewing and fabric), added some other prints that I love, and made my first square patchwork quilt.
On the back I used the Nano Iro I bought in Japan. Again, I had no idea how awesome Nani Iro was at that point. I added some gold fabric (only 3.5 yards left Kristie!!) and coordinating solids. Can I just say how much I love Cotton Couture? The back of this thing is crazy soft.
I stitched in the ditch to keep it simple.
|Do you see that black and white pebble fabric? I carved the stamp and printed it in a class with Lizzy House in 2009.|
This is definitely my new favorite quilt. While I still love my first quilt, this one, made 5 years later, has become my new favorite.
And since it was such a pretty location (an office park, *ahem*) I snagged a pic of me with my quilt assistant.
