Woven Ruby

This quilt started with just a layer cake of Ruby by Bonnie and Camilla for Moda. I love the prints in this line, and I didn't want to chop them up too much. I ended up cutting each layer cake into 5 - 2" strips and piecing those with some solid white. After trimming the blocks to 8" square I played with layouts, and ultimately decided on this simple woven design:

On the back I included a few left over blocks and some complimenting prints:

For the quilting, I decided to try out Elizabeth Hartman's Dogwood pattern. It's quite similar to the orange peel quilt pattern that I've used before! I quilted a dogwood in each 7.5" block; the larger quilt design really softened the look of this quilt, especially after a trip through the wash.

I used the aqua pin dot from the Ruby line for the binding, with a tiny bit of piecing thrown in!

Finished off at 49" x 63", this is a great lap quilt for snuggling on the couch (or in an adirondack chair)! It's now listed in the shop!

A Ruby Trip

I've been following along since the beginning of the year when Jessica of Twin Fibers picked back up on one of her UFOs. Seeing the project as it progressed, you wouldn't think I would be so blown away by the finished project - but I was! I just love the look of a traditional quilt made with such striking, modern fabric.
I couldn't commit to an entire quilt in this style, so instead I dug into my scraps and created a pillow! I love the Ruby fabric line by Bonnie and Camilla, so that was my starting point for this pillow. I added in some of the legacy Flea Market Fancy by Denyse Schmidt, Painter's Canvas in grass by Laura Gunn, a solid grey, some Mini Mikes in grey, and a few more prints from Ruby. Eventually I had enough scraps pulled out for an 11" square pillow.

I finished the pillow front with some all-over paisley quilting. This is quickly becoming a favorite of mine!

The back is an aqua polka dot from Ruby and an accent strip of the floral that inspired this color palette!
