Houndstooth Quilt

The design process can be an interesting one!

I remember one time in Bee Blessed we decided to make arrowhead blocks. For some reason, when I looked at that block I saw different patterns, and filed those ideas away!
Earlier this year I made this Starburst quilt, for a summer issue of Popular Patchwork, and realised one of those arrowhead ideas!

But I needed to 'scratch the itch' a little more, and so my modern Houndstooth Quilt came into being (in fact there were 4 other variations of this one!).

Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine fell in love with it and commissioned it for their November issue, which is in the shops now!

They also asked for a matching cushion:



I'll admit that this quilt is a little more modern than my usual style, but I love the 9 steps of gradation in the Kona solids from Black to Silver.
Kona Pomegranate has been one of my favourite colours since I discovered Kona solids - I love how it completely interrupts all that grey!

And just look at that bright canary yellow on the back!

It's a bad habit of mine not to look at blocks at face value! You never know what you might discover!

Happy sewing!
