When I saw this quilt at Film in the Fridge, I knew just what to do with some of the gorgeous hand-printed linen scraps my friend Lynn of South Street Linen gave me to play with!
Along with the linen scraps, I used white, ash, cream, and Kona Tangerine in simple borders radiating off the corner square. The widths of each layer were sort of randomly chosen and improvised as I went along. I love how it turned out-- using all solids is a great way to spotlight some really special fabric.
Lynn is an amazing artist, and making some of the softest, prettiest linens (scarves, table linens, and more!) you can imagine.
I quilted it in straight lines echoing the corner square, and then in L's, varying the density of the straight lines as fabrics changed.
I pieced a sweet little improv block for the back out of leftover scraps. I love putting a surprise back there!
It's bound in medium gray, and I gave it some lovely tangerine x details in a corner. Yum!
