Oh Essex Linen, you slay me. Your nubby texture, your sophisticated weave. You're like a warm hug on a cold day. And Kona solids? Your rainbowliciousness makes my heart go pitter-pat.
This bad boy is done. It's only taken me a year to finish it, but it's no longer staring at me, taunting me with its "just do it already" glare.
I win this time, Unfinished Project Pile.
So this baby is ready to be quilted! It's a queen size - for my very tall, middle child.
He says, "Ma, make me a bigger one of these:"
And so I did. It's a tad different but basically the same.
And guess what?!
I'm writing the pattern for it and it'll be in my shop for you all to buy!
And the best part?
This pattern makes TWO quilts at the same time.
It's so cool.
But I digress...
Essex Linen is one of my favorite fabrics to use - especially the yarn dyed. It shrinks like a mutha, so if you plan on using it for a project, but at least a half yard extra.
I just wanns share with you one of my favorite quilts that uses Essex Linen
This was done by my friend Jessica of A Little Gray
Just love this.
The gray is actually called black yarn dyed.
Essex Linen - or another linen - in your quilting.
