I loved every moment of making it and am really pleased how the greys and browns work together. If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know that I frequently venture into the non-white colour quilting world and this is another example that proofs that you don't always need white as one of your main colours.This was the first time that I made a quilt for a man. Actually that is not true it is the second time but it is the first time I made something with a very distinct male colour palette and male attitude and I think I nailed it as my uncle really was very happy about it.
I quilted in a double diagonal crosshatch lines which is particularly visible on the back of the quilt as I used a lot of grey solids there.
Following the cross theme I added a cross to the back of the quilt from the leftover pieces of the quilt front. This a good way of reducing the ever growing heap of fabric scraps. The greys used on the back of the quilt are all Kona (Ash, Coal, Pepper, Charcoal)
I bound the quilt in a lovely light grey/white stripy fabric which I is from the collection "From little things" by Sarah Fielke.
And here another images that shows the diagonal crosshatch really well. I do think this is one of the most effective straight line quilting patterns.
Have a lovely weekend.
