Domino 2


I just finished another version of this “domino” quilt. I rarely make the same quilt twice, but this pattern is so much fun. It feels colorful and playful but still sort of minimal. I used a little more orange in this version and I really like the warm and sunny palette of this one. I went with yellow binding, again. I think the yellow looks great with the backing fabric (a Zen Chic print). I am liking yellow more and more these days!



This quilt is for sale in my Etsy shop.

Domino quilt


This super simple quilt was inspired by a photo of pretty modern dominoes. How you would play with them I’m not sure, but they certainly looked great all lined up. The dominoes were a mix of painted and natural wood, so I used Essex cotton-linen blend to create a similar look. It took me a while to get the half rectangle blocks right–but I really love the shape. My husband picked the yellow for the binding, which looks super with the gray gingham backing. I love this design so much I just started another one!
