Living the Life

What to do with those left over 10" squares?  Well, they just happened to match some of the Indian Motorcycle fabric that I had purchased a couple of years ago for a special order.  I had bought a little more than I needed for the order and put it away for a future project.  I suppose this was the time to take it out of the stash closet.  The Moda fabric squares that I had were the perfect color to go with the dark brown motorcycle print.  A few days of sewing in between work and other commitments and this is what happened.

Living the Life

The quilt turned out to be approximately 78" x 92".  A nice size to snuggle up in on a cold day.

Label attached

The backing is snuggle flannel in tan/brown wolf & forest print.  I had bought a bolt of the flannel a while ago as it was a print I had not seen before and thought I may use it at some point for a quilt backing.  It worked out well.


I was fortunate enough to have just enough of the red & grey Indian wing print left to make the flange for the pillow case.  I still have just a yard or so left of the other fabrics.

The machine quilting is an overall stipple stitch using the last of the brown variegated thread.

On to the next project!
