Mulholland Drive in Cockateil August 05 2014, 3 Comments
We have another fun Quilt Market project to hare with you today! We made this Mulholland Drive quilt to be featured in the Hoffman California Fabrics booth. This quilt features Cockatiel batiks and we absolutely love how it turned out; it is so different from any of our other versions! The quilt finished 52” x 70” - the perfect size to throw over your couch.
The Cockatiel colorway is full of pastel greens, teals, grays, corals and yellow prints. We used the entire fabric line and used a light beige for the background. Some of the fabrics blend into the background, but I think that adds some interest!
My Mom, aka Wolf Creek Quilting, quilted this quilt with a combination of serpentine lines and a feather meander. She quilted the paper-pieced diamonds with a feather meander and vertical serpentine lined in the pieced triangles. She left the sashing pieces empty which gives the quilt some extra crinkle!
We bound the quilt in the same light beige that we used for the background. We like how it turned out, but in all honesty, it was the only fabric we have enough of! We made a label using a few leftover grey and beige scraps and our our Easy Quilt Label tutorial.
