a humble sew-a-long: Cascadia


Lori at Humble Quilts had a sew-a-long last November with her delightful take on an antique quilt she named Cascadia.
I sewed-a-long and mine did not turn out quite as perfectly as I had hoped. While quilting I kept trying to have the pieces fit exactly and they wouldn't.
A wise commenter  encouraged me to let the humble quilt be humble. I decided I wanted it flat and square more than I wanted it perfect, so I requilted it, squared it up chopping the edges and here is my humble result.
Another participant said hers looked like Indian corn--I like that reference for this little quilt!

I love it.

Quirky fabrics from my mother's and my stashes, backing of fall theme fabric with bittersweet and birds.
Thanks, Lori!

I agree too. Indian corn is a very good description. It is lovely in its quirky-ness. Congrats on the finish. Mine still isn't finished but more than half is quilted. I'll get there eventually. ;^)
