One Way in Alison Glass Fabrics
We love scrappy quilts! And our new favorite thing is scrappy backgrounds! We have always loved Alison Glass's fabrics and got incredibly excited when she came out with Abacus, a set of low volume prints. We used all the black and white fabrics as the background and assorted bright Sunprints and Handcrafted fabrics for the arrows!
We created a gradation of color across the quilt beginning with yellow in one corner and ending with orange in the other. Rainbows are my favorite and who doesn't love a good colorful quilt with a scrappy background!?
We took this and a new pattern (Privet Drive - more info coming soon!) down to the RINO district in Denver. There are tons of wall murals that make wonderful backdrops for quilt photos. Here are a few of my favorite photos and walls =]
Because the background is a little busier than most, we decided to keep the quilting a little simpler. Kristy quilted vertical straight lines at varying widths apart from 1/4" to 3/4". We then stripped together the extra colorful pieces of fabric to create a fun binding!

If you make this or any other Sassafras Lane project, we would love to see it! Send us photos or post them to our Flickr group.
