It all started with this block that I submitted to Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, I called the block Hungarian Posies because it was inspired by a photo of Hungarian embroidery on the cuff of a young girl’s sleeve. I’ve tried to find that photo but sadly I cannot. The block was accepted by Quiltmaker and was included in Volume 14 in the fall of 2016.
When you submit a block to Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, you don’t get it back. So I decided to make a quilt with my own blocks. For both the block I submitted and my quilt, I used fabrics from Bonnie & Camille’s Little Ruby line. For my quilt I changed up the palette slightly using a coral instead of a second red fabric. I also used a solid white from Moda. The sashing repeats the green center of the blocks with the same green gabric featured as cornerstones.
The back and binding are also from Bonnie & Camille. I love that green so much. I also love this quilt so much because it is really the first quilt that I fully designed myself. The quilt was quilted with Aurifil 50 wt white, which I think is my favorite and most used Aurifil. The quilting is just a simple meander. And OH!!! That binding!
