I had some reservations about Malka Dubrawsky’s “a stitch in color” for Moda Fabrics. I’ve been a fan of her pillow designs for a long time but I generally don’t care for the bold hand painted look represented by her first line of fabrics. That is until I saw the pillow she made with them.
And as I look back through her preview projects, I’m really drawn to this mini quilt.
As is the case with her pillow, I used a package of charm squares and the same windows blocks but increased the size of the “frame” using Kona in Medium Gray. I think that may have been a mistake as it appears to have changed the overall effect of the pattern. I wish I could explain that but the words escape me right now. The finished size is 38 x 43. I’m still using Warm and White cotton batting. The backing is made with two of Malka’s prints, the same orange and blue used for the binding. The quilting is intentionally wonky. The thread is Mettler.
My bindings are looking much more polished.
My Singer machine has been behaving lately. It seems the more lint it traps the better it sews.
