The Indigo Quilt top, featuring 3 Cats shweshwe indigo fabrics, came together beautifully. I didn't have enough shweshwe for the entire quilt so used a bit of dark indigo blue colored cotton fabric from Connecting Threads from my stash. The light center fabric the Kona® cotton solid "Snow' and the light "Bluebell" and medium blue "Denim"* are also Kona® cotton solids. (Note how those 2 colors of solid blue appear to be different depending on the fabric around them. It looks like there are more than 2 blues but it really is just 2 shades)!
When I drew this pattern, I had the center row of each block all facing east-west. But when I put it up on the design wall, I found that turning the square blocks so that the center section runs north-south was much more interesting. Added bonus: When assembling the quilt, I didn't have to match those center sections!
Just as I did with the pincushion in my previous post, I turned one small square block over to show the 3 Cats from the printed label! It's fun and it identifies the fabrics as authentic Da Gama Textiles for anyone looking at this quilt in the future.
*Note: I attempted to match the 2 blue Kona® fabrics I used with the Kona® color chart with actual swatches of fabric. I think picked the correct names but am not a 100% sure. I do wish Robert Kaufman Fabrics would print the name and/or number of the color on the selvage of their Kona® solid fabrics! It would so helpful!
