This is the fifth of my recent roll o' fabric quintet:
The pattern is "Boxed In" from Julie Herman's book, Skip the Borders. I checked this book out from my local library and have since purchased my own copy. So many of the designs speak to me. It is a fabulous book!
Of all of the quilts I've made from the roll o' fabric, this one is definitely my favorite.
I quilted the heck out of this one. I started by doing some stabilizing straight lines with my walking foot along all of the box borders. Then I quilted all of the squares-- each one has that sort of flower design. Finally, I quilted circles through all of the solid green parts. Throughout, I used Aurifil Cotton Mako 50/2 in Dove (#2600).
The quilting makes me happy!
Even the backing makes me happy. This hummingbird print has been sitting in my stash for quite some time. I was delighted to find that the colors in the print actually coordinated with the colors in the top. Yay for stashbusting!
The Project Linus label is stitched on already, so the quilt is good to go (pardon my sideways pic).
