Bringing some sunny cheer today with this Old Mohawk quilt finish - just looking at this quilt makes me smile. I started this quilt just before I released the pattern because I needed some serious cheering up from our 8 month winter here in Ohio.
So my fabric choices here for this crib size Old Mohawk are reflective of that need for SUN on my face. Spring flowers and sun were the color palette inspiration for this fabric pull from my stash.
Old Mohawk is designed for stash fabric pulls - mixing and matching fabrics and designers.
To change it up from the original Old Mohawk, I gave this quilt a different personality by choosing Robert Kaufman Chambray in Slate as my background. Chambray, where have you been all my life?! That blue-ish grey tone and texture add SO much to this quilt. It's the perfect balance of understated regality.
It's backed with Robert Kaufman Flannel in a sunny yellow polka dot and bound with a Brenda Ratliff One Room Schoolhouse print.
I used the Fabric chart that is included with the pattern to choose fabrics and keep track of them. So useful if you're an org fanatic like me!
