For this quilt I chose the ever-popular Cotton and Steel August collection by Sarah Watts. The colors and prints are bright and bold. I wanted to choose something that would shine with the large cuts of fabric.
This quilt is going to be a gift for some friends of ours. Although this pattern makes the perfect lap quilt for people of average height, it is a bit inadequate for someone of great stature. I added the border and the remaining charm squares to the corners to add a bit of size to make it an appropriately proportioned lap quilt for someone of unusual height.
The back of the quilt utilizes the remaining pieces left over from the layered cake along with some coordinating yardage.
I found the coral fabric with metallic dots that worked wonderfully to tie everything together.
