Sometimes I get on a roll and can't stop seeing what pieces of fabric will look when put together into a top.
1. I had these bright strips left from a jelly roll as I had used only the low volume in the previous baby quilt (a commission project - since there hasn't been a pic on the blog - posting it here). What to do with 12 strips? Yes, a baby quilt. Again, "Modern Minimal" quilt book came in handy, as I used the Broken Stripes quilt as inspiration, but modified it to fit the strips I had. The top is done, but I have to still quilt it. 44x44" square.
2. Then I made more and assembled the half square triangles made during the demo at our guild meeting into this wild quilt. Just a perfect baby size. The backing is solid green with a color full strip - thus calm. I double-folded the backing over to use as binding (trimmed the batting carefully to size of top).
3. Not sure that I have blogged about this quilt. A friend made this top just for fun, trying out her own design in a modern setting to give to charity. I loved it so much that I asked if I could quilt it. So, I did. Added a Marimeko backing, quilted straight vertical lines and bound it with some red and purple fabric. It's so pretty that the board decided to use it as a silent auction fund raiser item during our December guild meeting.
4. And then there is the Peace at do.Good Stitches Quilt. I received the blocks from my stitchers for my suggestion of making two blocks from Simple Strips from this Bernina QAL: weallsew.com/simple-strips-quilt-along-part-1-materials-l... with the request to use White for the solid, and colored fabric in Teal, Navy, Grey and Orange - choosing for the colored fabrics in a variety of heavy, medium and/or light weight for more interest. I quilted just as Christa did: Bernina Stitch #4, wavy across the seams on the vertical. Size: 50"x63"
5. And here is the last for this month: Saw this video and HAD to try out this amazing magic method to make hourglass blocks. I had 3 charm packs of this Blueberry Park collection and used all of them plus 2 squares cut from yardage. Yes, it is super duper easy and super duper fast. The quilt top was done from Wednesday afternoon 3 hours by Thursday another 3 hours done by noon. And with an all-over large loop-de-loop and again folding the backing over as binding, this is a quick finished quilt - measuring 45"x57".
