Hi everyone! January was filled with lots of things: sewing, illness, sewing, illness, work, stitches, illness, etc. I'm hoping my kids are done being sick/hurt because I no longer have any sick days left. Oh, the joys of parenthood. I've been spending a lot of time this month finishing up 2 quilts, getting ready to teach a basic quilt-piecing class, and getting ready for Quiltcon, which is only 15 days away from today. Before I can launch into what I'm currently working on, I still need to finish up blogging about the last quilt I made in 2014. Without further adieu, here is the Broken Herringbone quilt.
This quilt is the gift we gave my brother-in-law for Christmas. He's a bachelor in his early 30's. I wanted to make him a quilt that was masculine in fabric selection and in design. The broken herringbone has those wonderful rough edges. The majority of the fabrics come from Parson Gray's collections, which is the epitome of masculine fabrics.
I wanted to throw in a pop of color, so I went with the burnt orange. There isn't a speck of orange in any of the prints, but I really love how it turned out.
For the back, I utilized all the remaining scraps. It almost created another quilt top on it's own.
The binding is a scrappy binding which really blends in well with the quilt.
Now that I've finally wrapped up 2014, I promise to catch up on 2015 very soon. I have so much to share!
