The Cornerstone Square Burst quilt is the second quilt in Square Burst 2.0 series!
Fun fact, when I was coming up with the quilt design, this was the original coloring placement I was going to go with. When I design patterns, I like having a feature/accent fabric that is the same across all blocks that helps tie them together. The super scrappy variation came from a desire to have a fat quarter friendly option!
This quilt uses the same 21 Kona colors as the super scrappy variation with the addition of Essex linen in Chambray. I really liked how the texture of the chambray was a nice offset to the combination of colors. It looked like it belonged in the group without being overly matchy-matchy.
I quilted this one myself with a wavy stitch that is about 2.5" apart. In hindsight, I should've added another row of stitches in between, but that's okay! The less dense quilting makes the quilt soft and squishy. The drape is lovely and I think it will crinkle nicely when washed!
I used a gorgeous print by Rahsida Coleman-Hale for the backing from her Akoma line for Cotton + Steel. It is a beautiful teal color with pinkish/purple florals that compliments the front perfectly.
For the binding, I used Kona in Lilac that I had leftover from the backing of my cover quilt. (#thriftyquilting).
