pair of ice dyed quilts

I think the main reason my projects don’t find there way here is that I just don’t stop and take pictures like I used to.  In May, I made a fabric basket for a friend’s birthday.  The pattern was from Anna’s book, Handmade Style.  I was so happy with how it turned out that I snapped a quick pic with my phone and delivered it right away.  Later, I thought I would write a little post about it and then realized that all I had to share was this.

The back is a print with indigo stripes on a off-white background.

It’s made with some of my favorite ice dyed cottons and a mid-weight chambray.  The back is a gold and black print.

I think this quilt looks brilliant with all the lichen on the wall.
