The Linen Cupboard Quilt

I love the opportunity of supporting local quilters and designers so when I saw Emma Jean-Jansen's new range "The Linen Cupboard" I knew I needed to create a funky quilt with it. Check out my previous blog showing the wonderful diversity of fabrics in the range here.

I set about designing and constructing a quilt with this lovely range. I was given a brief of creating a quilt with a Hexie theme so decided to simplify the process by using equilateral triangles to form the hexies.
In keeping with the triangle theme I had my wonderful longarmer, Donna quilt this one with a design called tangled triangles.

Given all the contrasting colours in the quilt I decided to bind with a trusty old favourite, black and white stripe.

I must admit binding is now becoming my favourite part of the quilt making process. I enjoy hand sewing in front of the television and I think it's also because it is a sense of overall achievement when you know the quilt is almost done.

The final quilt will be available to see in full and make yourself soon, as it will be published in Down Under Quilts magazine in Australia in May. Unfortunately I have only been able to show you a few sneak peaks here.

I'm linking up with these fun places today Crazy Mum Quilts, Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday.
Till next time....happy sewing....

  1. Congrats on the publication! I used the same exact binding material this week!! I love your finish!

  2. Congrats and hope to see the entire quilt one day! Love the stripe binding ~ so fun! Hand sewing the binding on is one of my favorite parts of the quilting process!

  3. I love it - the binding is perfect too. Congratulations on the magazine publication.

  4. Binding is one of my favorite parts of quilting, too. The little peeks of your quilt are wonderful!

  5. This is beautiful! I think binding is becoming one of my favorite parts as well. There's something refreshing in knowing that you're almost done and hand-binding really slows everything down and allows you to enjoy the finish. Thanks for sharing on TGIFF! I can't wait to see the reveal and congrats on being published in Down Under Quilts!

  6. What a lovely quilt, the fabrics are just beautiful!
