Cozy Country Cousin

I've been holding out on you. In the last few months of last year I had a push on to move a few more flimsies to the finish line and Country Cousin was one of them. It's been finished for so long that I almost forgot about sharing it.

It's a very traditional quilt, reminiscent of something you'd find in your grandmother's closet, and it is totally inviting.

Lots of scrappy blues and neutrals play together.

And then there's the occasional hit of either pink, green or yellow, just for a little interest.

For the border, I inserted a narrow strip of pink and white pindots and I like how it worked.

It's bound with the same fabric as the outer border so that it didn't fight with that pink strip. I had a lot of the border print left over so once the binding was made I cut the rest of it up into binding for future projects because it's been around for quite some time and I was getting tired of seeing it in the stash. The leafy panto gave it a lovely texture.

Roberta had a terrific backing fabric that finished it off beautifully - a large floral print in the softest shell colour. It's a bit tough to photograph, but the pink picks up the pinks in the border on the front so nicely.
I've got another blue quilt to share as well, this one with yellow, but it's still waiting to be bound. Maybe next time....M

You've got to love a blue and neutrals quilt, wth a bit of yellow and green and pink, of course. Nice finish.

What a delightful springtime quilt. You definitely put together lots of blue pieces. đź’™ It's amazing how lovely they look side by side. It's a great feeling to finish a few WIPS. Well done

An absolutely beautiful quilt, the colours so warm and inviting. Also enjoyed seeing your hexies in the last post, Marie.
