In my ongoing sewing with stash initiative, I am steadily clearing out long ago designed projects. For this one, the striped green and white fabric ended up next to the orange and I became obsessed with using them together. I initially had some thinner striped material pulled to go with them but, in the end, decided that was not the desired look after all!
From my stash:
2003 Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Williams for Cloud 9 Fabrics. 100% certified organic!
The white was in my stash and I am not sure from whence it came… it is a bright white.
I made the top using a stack and whack method and made it with a huge scale. Each piece of fabric was 1 yard. Then I slice and inserted the navy!
I used straight line quilting. I used my big 9″ ruler to mark the first lines with my trusty blue water soluble marker. That made about 9 sections going diagonally. I quilted those line and then went back and added lines 1″ apart with my walking foot bar guide. I went back again and bisected those lines using the edge of my walking foot as a guide. Starting from one corner I made 1/4″ sections and then began spacing those out.
So the quilt had 1/2″ quilted straight lines with 9 sections I original marked. I made 1/4″ lines in the entire first section. For the next section I made 1/4 lines every second 1/2″ area. Then for the following sections I made 1/4″ lines every third 1/2″, then every fourth, then every fifth, and then worked back down to every one in the 9th section.
