Hey friends!  I am so excited today to share a little about Kristi’s (@initialkstudio on Instagram, http://www.initialkstudio.com ) new book with you.  She had me at pretty pictures, travel info and minimalist modern designs.  The deal was cinched when I got to meet the author at the latest Quiltcon.  Kristi is sweet, humble and a hard worker.  I love all of the above.

There are so many great designs to pick from in this book.  I settled finally on her Chimney Trail pattern and used some fabric I had indigo dyed last year.  I love the organic vibe the hand dyed fabric brings to the very geometric design and think it stays true to the Southwestern theme.

I backed the quilt with white quilting cotton and machine quilted horizontal lines.  At the last minute I decided to add some randomly spaced vertical stitching with traditional sashiko thread and needle.  I ran out of time to hand quilt as densely as I would like but will probably add some more with time.  There were a few blocks leftover when I was done that I decided to stitch together and made up some organic pillows.  I can see this combo being well used in the summer weather.

  1. The pictures are amazing! I’d love to see more of them. Your quilt and pillows are gorgeous. I love the combination of machine and hand stitching together!

  2. This quilt is so beautiful. Winter or summer, to me it seems like a Pacific Ocean quilt. Perhaps that is my Southern California roots showing? No matter, I love it!

  3. Hope I am not too late for a chance at this… the designs are so clean and crisp! A great counterpoint to my other love – scrappy color mess!
