MATTAPOISETT

MATTAPOISETT

While in Paducah last spring, a bought a looooottttt of fabric that I didn’t need, but couldn’t go home without.  I loved this Moda Homespun fabric, also called Boro Wovens.  I came home with 2 layer cakes of it (10″ squares).  I was so inspired by the overwhelming fabric choices, and now I’m trying to complete the many quilts that were exploding in my head as I was tossing all this fabric into my basket.

So this is ‘Mattapoisett’ (a favorite place to visit with my homies from the great and distant past).

The fabric has such pretty indigo and tan and neutral colors.

This stuff shreds if you looks at it. So I chose to just sew them together without any cutting or piecing. Very simple quilting to keep it soft and subtle.

Despite meticulous planning before I sewed anything, I managed to sew one row the wrong direction and ended up with two identical blocks next to each other. Of course.  So I added some hand stitching to minimize the error. It helps…

The back consists of many different fabrics, similar colors.  My attempt at ‘destashing’.  These type of backings always turn out to be the most lovely, in my opinion!

It measures 96″ x 96″, good for a queen or a king bed.  This is available in my Etsy shop.  Too pretty to store away…

Twenty more days, Ruby Lou!!

Thanks for looking!

Debbie
