The Unintentional Quilt

    UnintentionalQuilt copy

These fabrics came from a trader at the Brooklyn Quilt Show (I wish I could remember which). A handcut jellyroll of repro 1930’s fabrics I couldn’t leave as they were so pretty and such good value. Intending them as a gift for a friend I got them home and just started sewing the strips together (whoops). A few days later I noticed the Down and Quilt shop were moving and had bolts of fabric outside to clear, again a snip I couldn’t walk past. The white Makower print became the sashing and backing and with my daughter coming to stay I spent today binding speedily, in time for her tonight. It’s on the bed, the fastest quilt I’ve ever made!

    Seen it in the flesh and it’s beautiful..
    I hadn’t realised the tale of Quilter’s Addiction behind it!

    It is lovely. A good use of the fabrics. They would still be sitting in a pretty pile if they had been mine!

      Thanks, it’s already had a lot of use as the temperature has risen and the duvets are off, quilt on!
