Indian Corn

Background

This is another of the many quilt kits I have been bringing back from my annual trip to Lethbridge. Barbara and I both very much like the kits Janet and her daughters, of Village Quilts, put together. Some great fabric selections. I think, haven't checked, this one was brought back after the 2013 trip. The one delayed by flooding in Canmore.

Barbara started it on 2014.06.30, and completed the top on 2014.09.25. It was then taken to Catherine, of The Quilted Garden, for professional quilting. Batting (bamboo) and backing fabric were selected at that time. As was the quilting pattern: popcorn.

Barbara finished hand-stitching the binding on 2014.11.25. The completed size is 84x92 inches.

Village Quilts called their kit "Indian Corn" because of the colours of the fabrics they used. The basic quilt block used is known as the "cracker", "crackerbox", or "cracker jack" quilt block.


Love the colours!

This is one of those fabric selections that the Village Quilt crew get so perfectly.

Indian Corn, a crackerbox quilt, in an amazing colour & fabric selection.

Shots of a closer look at the "cracker box" pattern & fabrics, a look at the quilting pattern, and the backing fabric are also available.
