Sharon Holland has written a fun book of large patch, easy-to-piece quilts. The log cabin quilt above was made using her pattern "Cabin" in Utility-Style Quilts for Everyday Living. The quilt is her book is a play on the stripes of the traditional Hudson Bay wool blankets.
This pattern immediately drew me in--I think it's the perfect quilt for a picnic! But I wanted to use a different palate and green was was on my mind!
JP Knit & Stitch, a yarn and fabric store in Jamaica Plain, MA, recently changed hands. The new owner brought in a lovely selection of fabrics, including a number of low volume prints. The black prints on white (animal prints and floral prints) and the solid colors are all from JP Knit & Stitch. I added a couple new colored prints and some fabrics from my stash.
The quilting is all straight line done with a walking foot.
This quilt is really fun and happy!
Emmy and Greg, Bamboletta Forever Friends, took the quilt out to the garden for a snack. Turns out this 'Bear Party' quilt is also great for tumbling when the picnic food is gone!
