April 25 ~ Quilt of the Day
Heart/h Quilt Detail by Chawne, cauchy09
This Courthouse Steps pattern quilt from Chawne was machine-pieced, hand-quilted and hand-bound. It measures 58″ x 62″. Chawne writes, “The quilt is made in the same spirit that my great-grandmother brought to her quilting in Alabama in the early 20th century. It is a utility quilt made from the worn out pants of various extended family members and carefully put together into a simple geometric pattern. The fabrics are all cotton twill or corduroy: the white is painter’s pants, the blue is denim from heavy-duty jeans and the browns are various shades of khaki twill and corduroy. The quilt is backed with a patched vintage sheet and hand-quilted with thick cotton string.” Here’s a wider view of the quilt.
