Design Wall Monday: Sultry Quilt


I finished the quilt top made from a broken layer cake of Moda’s Basic Grey “Sultry” plus some pink (Candy?) and Azure Kona.  The  border has some Kona Snow, some Grunge,  some kind of white-on-white from my stash and Sultry yardage.  This is honestly the only layer cake I’ve ever bought (in 2010), and I’m not in a hurry to buy more.  It was irresistibly beautiful in the shop, but really there are just too many prints and colorways to look good in most quilts.  There are some funky little 4-patch units in here left from my first attempt to use this fabric.  I have no idea where I was going with that, but I stuck them in here.  This came from a shop called Threadbear in Las Vegas, New Mexico.  It was a really great shop with tons of modern fabric, and I remember spending a lot of money there.  Unfortunately, I don’t find any information for them past 2011, so I’m afraid my purchases weren’t enough to keep them afloat.  Does anyone have any info about Threadbear?


Here are fabrics I auditioned  for binding.  I chose this aqua and brown Alexander Henry print.  Wow, is it ever finely wovern and crisp!  Fun to work with, and I have just enough.


I don’t usually mark the quilting design before I sandwich, but I felt like it this time.  I’ve really written all over this.  Thank goodness for Crayola Washable Markers.
