Turkey Tracks: Cotton+Steel “Slopes” Quilt

Cotton+Steel “Slopes” Quilt

It’s finished, and I love it.

The design is by Amanda Jean Nyberg in her book NO SCRAP LEFT BEHIND.

I used all Cotton+Steel fabrics.  (They are now Ruby Star Society and released their first collection under a new manufacturer last August.)

See the little row near the top of small solids, which are not C+S.  Nybeg’s “Slopes” is made from solids, so her inclusion of this little row stands out more than mine.  Still, it’s kind of a cute surprise when your eye lights on it.

The backing and binding are also Cotton+Steel.

Here are some close-ups of these fun, often quirky, delightful fabrics:

One of my favorite fabrics is the one of bears.  And here you can see the little row of solid squares.

    • Hi there June. Thanks for the kind words about “Slopes.” And congrats about your new home. I don’t sell my quilts. Selling would make them work and would take away the creative piece for me. Plus, with quilts there is no way that people would pay the actual worth of a quilt in terms of both materials and hours spent making them. But thanks for loving the quilts I make. I so appreciate that.
