When I saw the fabric line Comma by Zen Chic (on sale at Fresh Squeezed Fabrics this week!) I coveted it. (Not surprising considering my serious fabric problem). I did not buy it right away because I couldn't think of a specific use for it. Then I thought of two friends, both high school English teachers, getting married this spring. I ordered a layer cake the same day! After all, is there anything that appeals to English teachers more than punctuation?
I'm calling the quilt Comma Sutra because of the commas and because it is a wedding quilt. :)
I used Kona White for the sashing and a tutorial I found on Pinterest by Mommy by Day Crafter by Night.
It took several cracks at the layout to get it right, and my trimming of the blocks was not as accurate as it should have been. I still think it turned out looking fabulous!
Here is Comma Sutra:
|Front- It is a very generous lap size perfect for two!|
|Straight line white quilting in the sashing, stippling with matching thread on the blocks.|
|Back- three different modern grey fabrics.|
|You can really see the impact of the quilting on the reverse.|
|This is a shot of the intersection between the three grey fabrics.|
|The binding is scrappy black and white and I think it might be my favourite part!|
|I hope they love it!|
