|Sun Kissed Harvest from Connecting Threads|
When I was laying out the pieces, an evil necessity with this pattern, it started to look rather masculine and kinda camo-ey, which was great since Jon needed a new quilt. Lee Henrich's version of her quilt doesn't look masculine, but she is definitely right, the pattern looks exactly like industrial diamond tread, and with the grays, drab green and orange in the fabric...bingo!
I removed the sunflower and the pumpkin prints from my layout and all of a sudden the orange tree print looked so much like hunter's wear, it was just meant to be. I backed the quilt it with a orange camo fluffy fleece and it make the perfect gift.
I used a piped binding again, but tried something new. I used the background fabric at the main binding color with a tiny gray piped piece. I like the way it looks...the thin thin line just in from the edge really emphasizes the negative space in the quilt.
Some Stats for the quilt:
Size: 54" X 76"
Quilting: Straight line quilting on my Pfaff
Fabric Used: Connecting Threads (very old line, whose name escapes me)
