september finish

Time for another triangle show and tell. Another smallish vintage linen quilt:

my cool summer breeze finished at 43" by 50". Hand-quilted with perle cotton on quilters request cotton batting.


These soft and romantic colors are photographed on a gray and rainy autumn day. 


Using a solid cotton for the back, the quilting is showing up nicely...


It has a lovely drape. The cotton batting makes it so soft to handle...




The size is determined by the content of my vintage linen stash, mostly picked up from Jeni's tempting store. It will fit my sewing machine storage unit, just like this one.

We are having rain showers with a sprinkling of blue sky now and then. Pulling out this quilt makes me  long for next summer. This one went by too quick!

Wish you all a good weekend

You're the triangle queen! I love the soft colors and how you formed the diamonds. I want to see a scrappy star from you!

I like this one a lot. You inspired me to make a triangle quilt for me, too. I'd love to start soon, but there's so much on my list and so little time... Greetings from Germany, Franziska
