Warp and weft from go to whoa

The Warp and Weft quilt is made from cochineal-inspired Rowan shot cotton
This week I finished my quilt that was inspired by the weavers of Teotitlán del Valle and the cochineal they use to dye their yarns. I've decided to call it Warp and Weft and the pattern is available on both my Etsy and Craftsy stores.
It started as a scribble in my sketchbook.
Palette chosen.
Marrying the pairs.
Cutting, piecing and ironing.
The finished top.
Binding… So close now.
The ta-dah moment! Hanging out at the park.
The quilt pattern is available in three different sizes – queen, lap and a baby quilt.
Playing with my warp and weft quilt colour palette

I often have to remind myself to take photos as I work, but I'm always really glad when I have because I love being able to look back at how it all came together. I'm already planning the next one…

  1. Gee, I'm going to miss all those bits of material hanging around when next I come visiting. Love the quilt. The pattern is really different............and the binding? Were you actually able to match that colour palette? Amazing!

    1. Don't worry, like it's not going to get replaced with some other textile project strewn all over the place!
      The binding is from the same suite of fabrics, so it wasn't that magical being able to match. It was the only stripe though without any outside colours in it.
      Glad you like it, because it will probably be on the bed in the spare room for a while.

  2. Good pattern and quilting.I wonder how it would go in Kaffe Fasett materials.

    1. Do you mean patterned fabrics Sandra? These are the Kaffe Fassett shot cottons. I did contemplate doing one row in a pattern, but I wanted something that suited the Mexican inspiration and couldn't find it.
      I reckon an option replacing either the darks or the lights with patterns might work.
