Hello Friends! It’s good to have you visit again. I am not sure if you are familiar with Quilt-it… today magazine. This magazine is only recently introduced to the market, and sold at an affordable price. I am sharing with you my YAY DAY quilt that is featured in the July/August 2013 issue of Quilt- it… Today.
This is a horizontal strip quilt using organic cotton prints from Birch’s Yay Day Collection. Click on fabric collection name to view the full range of fabrics. Click here to purchase the fabrics from Fabric Worm.
Here are a few shots of the quilt where you can see the horizontal strip layout a little better:
The pieced blocks in this quilt are framed blocks that are super easy to construct.
Quilting was done to match the horizontal strip layout of the quilt using straight line and machine “fly” stitching. Quilting was done using Aurifil Mako 50 cotton threads over Hobbs Tuscany Silk batting.
This is what the back looks like. Incidentally, the backing fabric is my favorite from the collection.
I hope you enjoyed my Yay Day quilt. If you like the quilt, I am curious what you liked about it – fabrics, designs, quilting, anything!
Have a lovely rest of the day, and great week ahead!
