That’s certainly what I did with this quilt, so that’s what I’m calling it. It’s on our bed and staying there! I love it and so does my husband. Not girly at all this one… I really like the simple graphic nature of this quilt. I offset the columns a bit giving it an asymmetry that I’m loving.
The fabrics? Konas Medium Gray, Coal, Charcoal, and the RK Gray Quilters Linen (which I LOVE by the way) are all in there. The background is Kona Ash. And then the yellow is a Kona as well – it’s Butterscotch. The one patterned fabric is a Heather Baily print.
I pieced together a back with the remaining fabric.
It’s already being enjoyed by everyone!
As a side note – thanks for all of your comments on straight line quilting. It’s clearly a topic that a lot of people are thinking about. Moving my quilting in different directions is something that I’m eager to do and I feel I might surrender to some long arm classes… I am tiring of stippling, and am not very attracted to many other simple free motion patterns. Straight lines really appeal to me though and the options are endless, but impossible to achieve well on my machine. I’m all about making quilts at home from start to finish, but at a certain point there are limitations… I just know the second I go and try long arming one of my quilts I’ll be ruined and never want to quilt a quilt on my home machine again. What to do? Oh the trials and tribulations of a quilting obsession!
