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!
