here is a quilt top I shared just a peek of a couple weeks ago, but didn't share the completed top yet........ made from one layer cake of Bliss (the leftovers are going to be a scrappy binding and are already sewn together). I added a 2 1/2'' white border to it after this pic was taken. I have enough of the aqua with white dots to do backing in that, but I'm probably going to continue to hoard that material and go with something else. I might order some aqua Kona instead....... this was made with layer cake squares cut into triangles, then sewn with it's opposing triangle to make 9 1/2'' squares - then the solid square background blocks are also 9 1/2''. Easy quilt...... fun and fast!
Today, I am going to baste this one:
can't wait to start quilting it!
Love both of these! That first one is such a simple idea, but turned out beautifully!ReplyDelete
I'm back and just wanted you to know I made a star quilt following your instructions. I used a yellow background and a Hello Betty (retro) layer cake. It was fast, fun, and easy! Thank you! I added a six inch border to make it big enough for our bed. I'll eventually get a picture taken and post it over on flickr, with a linkie to you, of course. ;)ReplyDelete
Finally got it up on flickr!ReplyDelete
I definately want to make this one for a king size bed. Im terrible at calculating. would the 10inch squares fit nicely for a king size? without being too bigReplyDelete
