pegasus quilt

This quilt is all about these joyful colors and just how happy-making the Anna Maria Horner pegasus-as-backgroud fabric is.

My fabric choices for the log cabins were inspired by couple of new fabric bundles that made their way into my stash: Carakai by Carolyn Friedlander (a present from Jenna!) and a particularly good assortment of Blueberry Park fabrics from Sew Modern. I mixed in a little Lizzie House, Heather Ross, and fabric that, for crying out loud, doesn’t even have a known designer.

log cabins and winged horses

I pieced the quilt at the Ann Arbor MQG winter retreat. Because I wanted to be able to just sit and sew as much as possible, I calculated and cut all the strips for the log cabins at once. No improv here, just tidy little piles of strips of certain lengths. The outer strip of the quarter log cabins in each block is a white-on-white print. I was hoping this would unify them all and provide some space before the winged horses come in.

Love how the background fabric makes the squares pop. Nice!
