Today's featured project is a quilt made by Mari Heidt as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge making 3 blocks each month in that month's color theme. Mari used Kona for the background and hand dyes for all of the color blocks.
Mari made this quilt as a homage to her Great Grandmother. She has a treasured block in this pattern from her Great Grandmother and that was the inspiration for the quilt.
This photo shows off the great texture that she got using wool batting. You can follow Mari and read more about this quilt at her blog, The Academic Quilter.
If you have made anything with my hand dyed fabric I hope you will consider sharing it in the Customer Gallery. In appreciation you will receive a 20% shop coupon that's good for 3 months!
