I finally finished our new quilt and pillows for our bed. Before we had a plain tan duvet cover with matching shams. It was feeling really blah to me, plus our duvet had seen much better days. I've wanted to make a quilt for our bed, but doing a queen quilt sounded very overwhelming. I have been looking for ideas for months, then came across this pattern from Oh Fransson. It was perfect. I wanted something simple. Her pattern calls for 12 fat quarters and two sheets. I ended up using 20 fat quarters because I wanted leftover fabric for the pillows as well as a throw quilt I plan to make for me for winter. I always need more covers than Ryan so I figured I would just make a matching throw for myself. All the fabrics are from Joel Dewberry's line Modern Meadows. The sashing is Kona white. I didn't want to use a sheet on top.
Of course there are pillows to match. I love how the square one turned out. It's inspired from this pillow. I really like the effect from the quilting. It's a bit hard to see in the photo though.
I did straight line quilting on the shams, though one is quilted horizontal and one vertical.
Finally, no quilt back is complete without some piecing. The pattern recommended using just a flat sheet, but I couldn't make a quilt without detail on the back. I did a pieced strip about 12 inches from the top that shows when you fold down the bed. The brown fabric for the backing is a flat sheet from Target.
