This quilt was made with Jen Kingwell fabric, made by Moda. I combined two lines, Moving On and Behind the Scenes. Moving On is printed on lawn and feels amazing. It’s a bit thicker than voile and has a great drape if you use it for garments. For clothes, it makes the quilt perfect for the South, lightweight and luscious. Behind the Scenes is a great collection of background prints. It is quilting cotton weight. I love how all the slightly different values add a new dimension to the quilt.
I quilted this by machine but also added in some big stitch quilting, a la Jen Kingwell.
I used Lollies, also by Jen Kingwell, for the binding. This might be my new favorite binding. The look of scrappy binding without all that piecing. I pieced the strips end to end, instead of mitre, to keep the look consistent.
This quilt features lots of different style blocks. There’s traditional piecing, a bit of foundation piecing and some appliqué. I did freezer paper and hand appliqué, but machine appliqué would also be lovely!
