Welcome to During Quiet Time! I would like to share my favorite quilt of this year. I am not very good at naming quilts so it has no real name beyond “my courthouse steps quilt”. It’s a lap sized quilt measuring 60″ square.
I took the traditional courthouse steps block and varied the width of each strip rather than making them uniform.
I tried to use as many different fabrics as I could for each color group, and lots of texture too. Many of the solids are linens and shot cotton, along with some Kona. I stuck to aqua, mustard, coral and grey. The colors just feel peaceful to me and they naturally merge together, in a favorable way, I think.
