My friend asked me to make a quilt inspired by this seersucker quilt from Martha Stewart. She loved the simplicity of the whole thing, from the simple fabrics to the large pattern. I never would have thought to make a quilt from seersucker, but I know for a fact that it is something I will happily do again. I absolutely love this quilt, and I hope she loves it too!
I used seersucker, shirting, flannel, and quilting cotton. I pre-washed everything since each fabric was a different blend of fibers.
The seersucker has so much soft and wonderful texture to it. It's light and wonderful to hold. It was actually very easy to piece as well.
I used Kona Ash quilting cotton for the back and binding. It just might be my new favorite solid.
Instead of a spiral pattern, I opted for a square-in-square look. I think it has to do with my personality...I just like things to be symmetrical and orderly. I always have. Probably always will.
So that's my latest creation. I hope my friend likes it as much as I do!
