I pledged to myself that I'd finish all my miscellaneous quilt tops (three from 2012) before the summer ended. As of last night, I made good on that promise!
This was the second quilt top I ever pieced, and the first not using pre-cuts. I won six one-yard cuts of Chicopee last summer from FreeSpirit and used them, as well as a random blue print and FreeSpirit Designer Solids in Nugray. I think I bought the whole bolt of Nugray and I'm still working through it.
I quilted it in diagonal straight lines about 1.75" apart. I used medium gray 50 wt Aurifil, which I found Eleanor chomping down like spaghetti this morning. It was still attached to my machine. I don't know.
The pattern is Pow Wow from Cluck Cluck Sew. I'd like to make another scrappier version. Just add that to my list!
I backed it with two prints from Madrona Road and bound it with another Chicopee print. This quilt screams late summer/early fall to me. I also was a bit annoyed at the wonkiness of the backing when I first realized it...but it's grown on me!
And Schnoz likes it, so there you go.
