Colorful checkerboard quilt for Briony

I made this quilt some time ago but never wrote it up.  I made this as a winter quilt for Briony, and I love how it turned out.  She’s slept under it most nights since I made it.


I used entirely fabric from stash for this quilt, including lots of large scraps.  There’s Sarah Jane’s Wee Wander, Lotta Jansdotter, Heather Ross, and many more.  I tried to alternate between light and dark fabrics.

The binding is a pink and white narrow stripe.


Since this was intended to be a “winter quilt,” I used my old favorite 100% wool batting from Quilter’s Dream.  It’s warm and fluffy as a result.


I did simple diagonal quilting, and I love how it turned out.

The quilt is a generous twin size and perfect for Bri’s bed.
