I'm unveiling Brownstone, sure to be my last finished quilt of 2014.
Mr. Main Street is my quilt holder while Dillie the Corgi photo bombs.
I finished piecing this curved log cabin quilt back in March but the quilting part was delayed while my long-armer moved south. I finished the binding and labeling last weekend but needed a day without clouds and rain to take a good photo.
Brownstone is 72" square (the blocks are 9"). The curved effect is achieved by making the pieces on the light side narrower than the pieces on the dark side. Despite being all straight line piecing, you get this curved look to the blocks. I blogged the how-to in February, here.
I used my stash of Fig Tree fabrics from Moda. I like the look of the light side so much I am thinking of making a whole quilt from the light neutrals that remain in my Fig Tree stash. I just need to come up with a design.
Karen Thompson quilted Brownstone using a panto design of swirls. I think the quilting design works well with this block.
I have a few days off work over the holiday and have already started my next project! Of course!
