Meet Richmond, one of my most favorite quilts! About a year ago I was invited to contribute to a compilation book, Scraps, Inc.Vol.1: 15 Block-Based designs for the Modern Quilter, that would have fifteen different scrap quilt projects. I didn't even have to think twice about my answer (an immediate "yes") when I saw the email was from Susanne Woods, and when I saw the other contributors I was honored and quite a bit intimidated to be included in such an amazing creative group.
I had a lot of fun piecing my quilt almost completely from my scrap bin (I ended up having to order just a bit of fabric for the binding). The grey background fabric is actually the grey on grey polka dot from Bonnie & Camille's Happy Go Lucky collection--I love that grey and have used it in a lot of projects.
I love the quilting on this quilt, too...
The fabulous quilting was done by my friend Natalia Bonner; she created the perfect combination of feathers and more modern lines.Did I mention this was one of my favorite quilts? Even though I think it's more of a masculine quilt, both of my daughters have mentioned that they want it. I'm keeping it for me for now, though!
Every project in this book is perfectly suited for using your scraps; there are several I want to make right away. This book is a great addition to your quilting library and would also make a terrific gift for any of your quilting friends!
