Churndash Court in Miss Kate June 30 2014, 1 Comment
This is officially Moda week here on the Sass blog. We have three projects made up in Moda fabric to share with you and we are kicking it off with this Churndash Court. We made this version of our Churndash Court pattern with a jelly-roll of Miss Kate by Bonnie and Camille. I love, love, love this version!
Miss Kate stocked full of fun prints containing florals, scallops, polka dots and tiles. The combination of colors is to die for! Red, lime, navy, aqua, white pink and orange. The orange scallop print is my absolute favorite! I wish I had some more to use in other projects! We paired a solid navy with these bright scraps and the churndash pops off the quilt!
My Mom, the talent behind Wolf Creek Quilting, quilted wavy lines in the center of each strip and on each seam with a blue thread. She continued the wavy lines across the churndash and it creates a really neat look and gives the solid fabric some texture.
We had a few extra strips left over from the front, so I pieced them together to make a scrappy label. I used the same Quilt Label technique as before, this just looks a little fancier with the piecing. We chose the large red floral for the backing of this quilt.
We used the rest of the leftover jelly-roll strips and the same solid navy as the churndash to make the binding. We used the navy scallop, red scallop and red floral scraps along with the solid navy to jazz it up a bit! I love scrappy bindings and the solid navy seemed a little strong for such a small quilt.
