Got another completed quilt to show you! It was a lot of fun to put together- it went quickly and easily, and I LOVE how it turned out!
I actually designed this quilt based off of a picture I saw on Pinterest, and used a fat quarter bundle from Connecting Threads that was on sale. I cut out four 8.5 inch squares from each fat quarter and used the four-at-a-time method to make HSTs for each one using white fabric.
And then I cheated.
I didn’t trim my HSTs before sewing the blocks. Somehow, my blocks still came out beautifully! My points were, well, on point. Either luck or skill was responsible for that, but we’re going to pretend it was all skill and no luck.
Got it quilted with a swirling bubble pattern that I really enjoy. It’s backed and bound with a gorgeously lush purple that matches the sashing/borders in the quilt top. (It doesn’t look like it, but it does match!)
We’ve had some snow recently (Thanks, Helena!) so I coerced the hubs outside in the cold to hold it for me while I snapped a few pictures. I really enjoy this quilt, and it will be up for sale on my Etsy shop! Check it out here.
I’ve also started a weekly quilt along with Pat Sloan called The Winter Solstice Challenge. Each Wednesday, Pat posts the directions to a block and we make the block. I’m using up fabrics from 13 fat quarters I bought at my local quilt store. They’re themed with Asian motifs (think Koi/blossoms/cranes/etc) and in shades of green, pink, blue, and grey.
Here’s the first three blocks I’ve finished! I’ll keep updating each week. If you’re interested in joining, I’ll always link to her page so you can find the directions for the blocks. Happy sewing!
