I started working on this green, white and red quilt during one of my improvisational quilting classes. I was inspired by this quilt made by Martha Jane Pettway. You may remember a similar green and white split log cabin quilt I made last year, inspired by the same quilt. Well, these two are similar, except that they're completely different!
I used a combination of cottons and linens in this one. The off-white cotton I used on the front is Robert Kaufman's Kona Crush, which is fast becoming my most beloved fabric of all time.
The backing is pretty simple. Some really silky feeling blue chambray, a panel of home dec. weight pink floral, and more of that lime linen. The quilting shows up so well on the blue chambray!
The lime green linen is from a towering stack of linen banquet table cloths that I purchased from my favorite local re-sale shop. I just picked up a couple more yesterday, so be on the lookout for more work using dark khaki green, mustard yellow, and purple linen. (Don't worry too much, it probably won't all be in the same quilt...but you never know!)
By the way...this one's for sale!
