8 Bound Quilt.


So I haven't blogged in months, oops! This summer got away from me, I can't believe it's already September! I've spent most of the past few months taking senior portraits, but I've got some really exciting things coming up that I can't wait to share here very soon! In the meantime though, I've got a few quilts to share here, starting with this baby quilt that I just finished this week.
I was able to finally meet April Rhodes this past spring at Quilt Market, and she is just the sweetest! She asked if I'd be interested in sewing with some of her new line, Bound, and of course I said yes. Her prints just really speak to me! I mixed up the Morning palette with some prints from her last line, Wanderer and a bunch of Leah Duncan prints. Their fabrics go so well together! I had to mix in a bit of Essex yarn dyed linen in a couple colors too to give some spots for the eye to rest.
Anna and I narrowed down the fabrics I was going to use at our annual sewing retreat, and she suggested that I make a log cabin quilt with them. I love log cabins so I thought that was a great idea!

Since I only had FQs of some of the prints, I had to get creative with the piecing as the strips got longer, and just started adding on other random strips. I really like the easy, relaxed look it gives the quilt!
Piecing this quilt was so much fun, I want to make a million more of these. It's just so easy to cut all the strips ahead of time and add a few here and there!
I kept with the easy theme with the quilting, and just stitched in a square pattern starting from the center and through each strip. It looks nice, took no time at all and makes the quilt really soft.
It's backed in my favorite print from Bound, Painting Celebration and bound in April's Coming Home Spring print and ready to gift to it's new owner as soon as she makes her arrival!
Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful fabric with me April!


  1. Wonderful quilt. I'm struggling now to add other fabrics to Aneela Hoey's A Walk in the Woods fabrics, but very unsure of myself! I wish I had your confidence :-) This log cabin turned out great!

  2. I really like your quilt! I'm planning on something similar and wondered how thick you made your strips and starting square?

    1. I'm wondering the same thing! I'd like to try something similar with jelly roll strips.. :)

  3. Gorgeous quilt, pretty fabrics, and great photo shoot!

  4. Looks amazing! Such nice idea on how to use log cabin :)

  5. This is so lovely and your photos are perfection!
