Here’s a quilt that’s been done for a while but has taken a bit to get featured on the blog:
I call it the “Over-Under Bite” quilt. At first, I was planning on just calling it the Under Bite. But that was when I had this sketch and intended to make a quilt that fit the picture:
I thought the “Over-Under” name would better reflect the gamble that always takes place when I try and turn a diagram into a quilt : )
The original idea for this quilt just came from a desire to find a fitting pattern for this fabric. I don’t know what it is about this stuff, but I just love it. The saleswoman said it would make for an attractive binding – she’s right, but I wanted to feature it more prominently. So I drew some bold triangles, reflecting the geometric nature of this pattern, and paired the burnt orange with some bold purplish/blue and laid it all on top of a geometric beige print.
The mustard yellow border is Robert Kaufman Gold Ultra Sateen.
It measures 60″ x 60″ and is available in my Etsy shop.
