Last official finish 2015: Negative Crosswalk

Love Patchwork & Quilting issue 29 NEGATIVE CROSSWALKS
[Photo provided by Love Patchwork & Quilting]

I feel so appreciative for the chances I have had this past year. The last of the year, my “Negative Crosswalk” quilt and pillow were published in Love Patchwork & Quilting, Issue 29 (arriving in stores this week in the US). I love this photo, they did an amazing job with staging my quilt.

The quilt came from one of my quilt design a day’s design.

The quilt has come home now. It’s one of my favorites. I love the graduation of the back to light greys. I continued the lines through the edge, in the binding.


The quilting was all straight line quilting with my walking foot. I used 1/2″ lines for negative space and then matchstick quilting for the crosswalk pieces. I used matching Aurifil thread which worked out great.


I wanted to continue the striped theme on the back. I used a variety of striped fabric (black, grey and white stripes) to comprise the back with a couple of pops of color (from Tula Pink Elizabeth prints).
