Mad for Plaid
Last Summer I spotted this stack of green plaid fabrics at a garage sale. I was able to cut many, (MANY!) 8-inch squares from that stack and thought they would look great paired with some Kona Khaki.
This quilt finished at a large twin size – almost a full. It was the first official quilt I quilted on my new Grace Pinnacle frame and I’m super happy with how it turned out. No more crawling on the floor to baste quilts! hooray!
One of my big concerns was having the green fabrics bleed onto the khaki in the wash, but it did great! The backing is solid Khaki – so boring that I didn’t bother photographing it. The binding is a green plaid as well. This quilt is on it’s way to my church’s Humanitarian Center. I saw here that they are need of quilts – and that’s one thing I can do!
