I am so happy to be participating in the Bloggers' Quilt Festival for the first time! I went around and around about what quilt to post and finally decided to post something a little older from back in the days when I wasn't part of this great blogging community I was blogging in a vacuum. I chose the All Lined Up Quilt, pattern by Malka Dubrawsky. This was the 8th quilt I had ever made back in August of 2010.
This was one of the most challenging quilts I'd made partially due to some confusion with the pattern but it is still one of my favorites! I really love Malka's work and I am so excited to use her new fabric line coming out.
All of the stripes are pieced solids which was the bulk of the work for this quilt. The blocks are created using a log cabin technique but it's the random feel the quilt has that I love. The quilting was supposed to be on the seams but I opted for loose random lines that sometimes changed direction. I also quilted with a bright pink which looks really good with all the colors and Malka used a turquoise which I did in pincushion below.
I have used the scrap strips, which I still have a lot of, so many times in the past year I think I will always keep some on hand for random projects.
