Most of the quilts I make are made to test the patterns I dream up. But this little quilt and matching pillowcase were made just for the sake of making.
I am seeking to use up some of the fabrics I have had lingering in my stash this year. And I still had a little bit of fabric left over from making the Fox among the Birches quilts and from selling quilt kits for those in my Etsy shop. You can see my first Fox among the Birches here and the second one here.
For the backing, I had 47" of the Animal Toss in Pebble from the Forest Friends collection for MODA. The coordinating binding is Birch Trees, also in Pebble.
Because I still had a little of the binding fabric left over, and it was now looking so lonely, I decided to make a matching pillowcase. The pillowcase measures 14.5" x 26" and fits a 13" x 20" pillow form.
Of course the quilting was performed using my walking foot to create organic wavy lines with Light Grey Omni from Superior Threads on top and a slightly darker grey thread in the bobbin. The Omni has been used for a lot of quilting and is almost completely finished!
This set includes quilt, pillowcase and pillow insert and is now listed for sale in my shop here.

Your quilt is gorgeous. I love strip quilts and they are so quick and easy. One day when I have the right fabric I will make one!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful use of these left over fabrics. Quilt and pillowcase are beautiful. Love the orange with the grey!ReplyDelete
I like it - strip quilts go together so quickly and you quilted it so nicely to - it almost looks like little waves going across.ReplyDelete
What a sweet quilt. Your wavy line quilting shows so well on this quilt. There is so much movement. Encourages me to give it a try.ReplyDelete
