This quilt was made for the daughter of an engineer dad and interior designer mom....so must be 'modern'looking, have strong geometric lines, incorporate hot pink IKEA pillowcase fabric (cornerstones) and coordinate with the quilt I made for big brother Owen 3 years prior. Yikes.
So, I took 4" squares of Kaffe Fassett's fab print in two pinks, framed them with 2" strips of stripes or plaids, then cut them using a 6" square ruler set on an angle to the block (that's how you can get your centre squares dancing on an angle without complicated angled piecing of the framing strips).
All blocks were sashed with a Kaffe shot cotton in denim (from Owen's quilt) with the IKEA fabric as the cornerstones. I like the simple quilting very much...just used lots of colored thread to match the brights in the fabric and chalked straight lines using the centre square edges as a guide. It's all backed in flannel, so it's super cozy and styley (for mom!) too.
