I don't think I've ever been so deeply in love with a traditional patchwork quilt before.
Most of these fabrics are Suzuko Koseki, Lecien, Anna Maria Horner, Denyse Schmidt, a little Moda Hometown and some Lakehouse seed packet fabric. I challenged myself by using red, white and blue and muted tones while trying to make this traditional palette look modern. So, I named this one Americana.
I think the perle cotton big stitches and x's in black really make this quilt.
Here is the back.
The part that took the longest was burying the diagonal stitches of the x's in between the layers of the quilt so you can only see horizontal and vertical lines on the back.
Here is a shot after washing the quilt. The binding is from Moda's Mama Said Sew line. I love that charcoal dictionary print.
Right now this quilt is neatly tucked next to the couch, but I'm certain that soon it will be dragged into service for Henry. His favorite books seem to need a lot of naps in my bed lately. "Buzz book sleeping...shhhh...Wake UP!"
