This is part of a year-long series of posts about the quilts from Modern Patchwork. I'm highlighting a different quilt each month, and will be remaking each of the book quilts in some way. Right now, I'm playing catch up with a quilt top and back that I finished some time ago. I used my Glam Garlands pattern, but integrated elements of Alissa Haight-Carlton's Drip Quilt from Modern Minimal. Here are links to my posts about the mashup concept, making the blocks, making the quilt top, and making the quilt back.
This is my Glam Garlands/Drip Mashup quilt, which is a combination of my Glam Garlands pattern from Modern Patchwork and Alissa's Drip quilt from Modern Minimal. (See the top of this post for links to the books and my posts about the process of piecing the quilt.)
Normally, I make an effort to select a binding fabric that will contrast with both the front and back of the quilt. When I went to make binding for this quilt, I planned to use Kona Charcoal (which would have contrasted with both the front and back) but I found that I didn't have enough. Wanting to get the binding done, I grabbed some Kona Steel not remembering that it was the same solid I'd used on the quilt back. I somehow managed to get the binding made and machine-sewn to the quilt before I realized this. D'oh!
The coordinating binding isn't something I plan to make a habit of, but I actually don't mind the way it looks on this quilt.
