Geometric Patchwork Quilt Finished!

I made this quilt just for fun, it is all from my stash . I might enter it into some quilty exhibits, because it’s nice and neat and I didn’t mess hardly anything up on it! I also might sell it, or give it away, because lord knows I do not need another quilt in my house.  I wrote about it here previously, and got the idea/tutorial from here! I’m linking it up to Manic Monday, and Sew Modern Monday, because I love these places where bloggers share all their projects!

The front – it has a pretty healthy border on it. I wanted it to be a full size, but ran out of fabric for the center piecing. The fabric is a mix of organic and vintage PLUS my standard white Kona. So, anyway, somewhat eco-friendly.

I used cotton batting; I have given up on my eco-friendly recycled soda bottle batting dreams, because, blerg, I just don’t like polyester batting. My dream would be maybe an 80/20 poly/cotton batting where the 20% is poly from soda bottles and the 80% is organic cotton with a 2-3% shrinkage rate and it’s say, $40 for a king size bag… I do have other very specific dreams that aren’t about batting, like, say, world peace and ending global warming, in case you were wondering.

Geometric Patchwork I said I was out of fabric from the piecing, but I actually had exactly this much left of my blue fabrics, which I used in the backing, which is a vintage cotton sheet:

Here is an up close on the quilting on the back. This was actually my first time doing this standard meander quilting. I wanted something generic that would fade into the quilt but add uniformity.

It went really quickly and I like how subtle it is. I don’t think it’s for every quilt, but I do think it was the best option for this one.

 

 

 

And here is a picture of the front again that isn’t all washed out. I couldn’t decide which picture to use, so I used both. And thanks to my sweetie, who holds up quilts for photoshoots in our 20 degree backyard. See his gloves peeking out over the top?
