WIP: Plume Quilt

The Plume Quilt

This quilt top is one of my favourites that is finished. When I first saw Tula Pink’s Plume, I think it might have been the first time I really loved fabric with a lot of pink in it. The turquoise and pink and lime together is just so luscious and it was love. I only bought a layer cake (and later a bit of yardage for the borders and also for the backing, which fabric I can’t seem to find, hence not finishing it).

The pattern isn’t very visible in this particular picture, but it was from a Moda Bake Shop project, though I can’t remember what it was called. I don’t think the original had borders, I added though to make it large enough to be adult lap-sized. Also, I felt like it needed a yellow border to make the single yellow block make sense. (Plume only has one yellow print, and I don’t know why it has it at all…)

I do need to go looking for the backing fabric though because my mom wants to tackle the quilting as a evening project. She has done hand-quilting for me a few times and I’m happy to give her something to work on. I plan to have something really simple done in the center of the quilt and in the yellow border, and then to have a traditional feather pattern quilted into the larger green border.

Left to Do:
– (find and) piece the backing fabric
– baste and quilt
– create and attach binding

This has since been finished in 2018, but I haven’t written a post about it yet. When I do, I’ll delete or anyway edit this.
