One simple quilt

27 11 2015

But first—

Last week I forgot to include a picture of the back of the Indigo Study quilt (#250) in the post.  Although nothing like the Japanese style of the front of the quilt, the colors of this piece were so perfect and the fabric was so wonderful that I thought it would be fun as a back.

And now a super simple quilt, just the thing for someone getting started, since four patches combined with whole square blocks are an easy pattern to sew in this straight grid.

This is also the perfect quilt to use up all those 2.5″ squares I keep cutting from leftover scraps of finished quilts.

In this case, however, the Leftover quilt was finished before the original one, perhaps because it was so much smaller and that much easier to quilt and bind.

Here are two detail photos showing the quilting pattern in the body of the quilt and in the borders.  This is an easy pattern for me to quilt using the walking foot and not marking before I start the curves, mainly because I have done soooo many quilts like this.  I like how it looks complicated but is quite simple, sewing each row of the curves twice, from top to bottom and side to side.
