luxor throw finished – but why luxor?

This Thursday I am flying to see my Mum in Prague. Looking forward to that, I can visit a few patchwork shops and get some quilting threads. When I come back home I have quilting work waiting for me – a double bed quilt in the QAYG method. This kind of quilting I can manage well on my Bernina sewing machine.

In the meantime I have finished quilting and binding the Luxor throw.

Description : Luxor Throw, size 60″ x 70″, designed with chevron log cabin blocks

Fabrics : made with red a blue fabrics designed by Kaffe Fassett, solid “zig zag” fabric is in salmon pink, binding in bright orange

Quilting : free-motion quilting with meanders

Now – why the name Luxor? During my last visit to Prague we went to one of the largest book stores that is directly in the heart of the city on the Wenceslas Square and this building is called Luxor Palace. Here I spotted an original floor mosaic and I couldn’t resist taking a photo.

And I also shall have a small handmade present for my Mum packed in my suitcase :

This is my 100th post – I shall treat myself with a sip of champaign today evening. Thanks for visiting,

  3. Hope you have a lovely time while visiting your Mum! Congrats on the beautiful Luxor and chevron finishes, Barbora! They are both very sweet and I am sure your mum will love that adorable pillow. Congrats on your 100th post, too! I just started following on Bloglovin’ so I will have to do some backtracking and then I’ll be on board when you next 100 come along. Happy Holiday!

    You do such great things with chevron! I think the color palette is probably the key, but I love the contrasting-shapes-with-similar-angles effect you have going on. Do you know, the crafting community? We just added a quilting sub-community, and I’m pretty sure the people in it would go crazy for this.

    Happy travels. I like both the floor and the quilt! The pattern looks like a good way to use floral fabrics, keeping variety under control with color choice and the constant white.

      Thanks for stopping. I think the solid fabric breaks the floral prints so that they do not completely take over the quilt.
