Everett’s Plus Quilt

everett1

My dear friend is having a baby boy in just a couple of weeks!   Her decorating style has always really impressed me.  Her home has lots of dark wood, rich colors, gold filigreed wallpaper.  They are big on Americana and she finds all sorts of amazing items at estate sales.  In fact she is one of the bloggers for the popular thrifting blog Dig This Treasure.

I decided to do a repeating plus block quilt similar to THIS ONE, but in nutty browns, tans, black, white, and some splashes of orange and yellow.  This whole quilt came to fruition when I scored some vintagey looking Star Spangled Banner music fabric from a swap at the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild. everett4It’s quilted with a large zig-zag embroidery stitch (#16 on my Bernina).

The backing fabric is mostly this AMAZING Field Notes fabric by Moda and some left over strips (origin unknown) that I used to back THIS quilt from the Positive Space Quilt-A-Long

Anyway the quilt goes best with my friend’s living room, but take a look at their amazing mint nursery! And yes – that’s a taxidermied boar’s head.  And that’s a real dog, not a toy. Screen Shot 2013-09-20 at 8.19.44 AM
