This week’s Project Quilting challenge was super hard. I had to decide what my favorite fabric was. In case you’re new to quilting, this is like asking a librarian what her favorite book is! Many of us have a stash full of beautiful fabrics. Some of them we’ve had for ages because we’re in love with the fabric and have yet to find a project worthy of cutting it up.
Fortunately for me, I like to use my fabrics, so chopping up some of my favorites wasn’t super difficult. For this challenge I decided to cut into my Good Company panel by Cori Dantini for Blend Fabrics.
It’s 20 kinds of adorable, and along with the multi print made fabulous focus fabric for my challenge quilt this week.
For the quilt, I decided to pull several colorways that worked with the art in the focus prints. I chose to go with green, blue, yellow, purple, coral-orange, and neutrals. I used each of these separate color ways to make scrappy improv log cabin blocks, along with a few solid squares interspersed throughout.
I started by blocking out my design on graph paper, determining the placement of the large panel pieces. The rest of the quilt layout was worked out as I went, and I absolutely love the results.
“Good Company” finishes at approximately 52×60″. Do you have a favorite fabric?
