Crayon Commute

Remember this stack of fabric

Crayon Commute stack

Last week it was turned into this:

This quilt is a copy of this one that I made back in 2010:


I called this one Train Tracks and I have no idea why it never appeared on my blog! 

Both of these little quilts are inspired by this one that I spotted over at Bijou Lovely.  I love the simplicity of the pattern and how it lets the fabrics take center stage.

The cute gray fabric in this quilt is called Crayon Commute and it is by Alexander Henry. The light blue is a Riley Blake blender fabric (color: Robin).  The red (binding too) is American Banner Rose from Moda and the yellow is from the Moda line Charlevoix.  I added in a Kona solid (Navy) and some white Kona for the sashing.

I used more of that buttery-soft yellow fabric on the back and added in a strip of stacked coins (one of my most favorite ways to piece a quilt back!)
