Patchwork & Quilting

A Modern Approach

This week I’ve been getting stuck into the Gumnut Babies Quilt – playing and experimenting with a modern Log Cabin block design. The quilt top is now finished – yay! – ready to be basted and quilted.

I purposely made the quilt top look patchy especially with the grey block fabric as I wanted to really embrace a modern approach and thinking towards constructing this quilt. Personally, I think it adds character and whimsy to the overall design. I’m really happy with where it’s at and can’t wait to get stuck in quilting it.

For the back of the quilt, I’m going to make my first pieced backing with some of the left over fabric strips I used for the Log Cabin blocks and again just play and experiment my way through to the finished product!

Let’s get into it!

Happy Sewing! xx
